Candid Kid is an indie band from from Minneapolis, MN, made up of four friends, Benjamin Muller (Vocals, Guitar), Tanner Uselmann (Guitar), Cooper Doten (Bass, Vocals) and Reese Kling (Drums). The band formed in 2014, and now, three years later, are coming off their second release, BLUSH.
There's a fresh, infectious energy in BLUSH that can't be avoided. It's a live sound that piqued Minneapolis engineer and producer Brett Bullion's (Bad Bad Hats, Low, Halloween Alaska, etc.) interest before recording BLUSH. Candid Kid live tracked nearly everything, with small embellishments added after the majority of the recordings were finished. What you get is a chemistry between four players that's tight and disciplined, with a unique style as natural as it is fun. Simply put, Candid Kid loves to make music.
You can stream BLUSH on their bandcamp:
Candid Kid has an upcoming show at the Amsterdam Bar & Hall in St. Paul on September 20th with Double Grave and Ar.Birn. Details about that event can be found here.
