Drawing comparisons to Pulp, The Wedding Present & Blink 182 – all of which I find rather baffling, mind you – The Winterkids seem poised to be the next buzz band of the moment. A 5-piece of teen/twenty-somethings hailing from the countryside village of Peaslake, the Kids are releasing their first full-length, Memoirs, on April 9th through Rough Trade & Banquet Records.

Preceeding the release, the Winterkids are making a few stops in New York before playing an impossible number of shows at SXSW.

The Winterkids – Tape It
The Winterkids – All The Money

Also available is the video for the first single, ‘Tape It’ in which you can see lead singer James Snider looks roughly 12 years old. I guess the Kids part of their name is quite literal.
