Rambunctious indie rockers, Good Kid, who blend J-rock, Pop Punk and Indie are thrilled to release their new single “No Time To Explain” that is out now.
The band says, “No time to explain is about the change that comes with getting close to someone and how it can be scary and uplifting at the same time. We’ve all had love at one point or another and the song is about that moment when you let yourself be vulnerable. where you’re like – well, I’m ok not knowing what’s next, this is worth it.
In support of the new music the band is touring the rest of the year. See all tour dates below and more to be announced.
Toronto based band Good Kid are fighting against the darkness with energetic songs full of wistful exuberance. Where some bands might be more concerned with acting the part, Good Kid are focussed on being themselves, blasting forward with a rambunctious ear – to – ear grin. Their sound hits a familiar note, combining J-rock, Indie Rock and Pop-Punk influences, while leaning on anime-style illustration, character-based story telling, and video game culture. They are a representation of a generation that has grown up in an increasingly bleak world, where the only way out of the existential dread is some good, clean fun. Since 2015, Good Kid have been pumping out music and videos with equal parts high octane riffs, catchy melodies, whip-smart lyrics, and innovative creativity – all served with a dash of wholesome innocent energy. Good Kid are the type of band you want to bring home to your parents.
Good Kid have an intense work ethic that has seen them making strides independently, separate from the major label machine, yet still garnering millions of streams, and a dedicated global street team. Their innovative and authentic approach to their Twitch and Discord servers garnered feature interviews in KEXP and Paste Magazine – and their individual professions in the tech space have been featured in New York Times. Their music has appeared in Fortnight radio, featured in collaborations with FAZE CLAN, and have been endorsed by some of the world’s top gamers and youtubers, like TommyInnit, Wilbur Soot, Ph1LzA as well as e-sports brands TSM, Liquid, and Cloud9. They recently embarked on their first US tour, and saw lineups around the block, selling out shows in many places they had never played before. If there was ever a question on how to propel internet fandom into real tangible growth and fans, Good Kid has the answer.
With 425k+ monthly listeners on Spotify, sold out shows across America, groundbreaking music videos that employ technology in increasingly creative ways, a self made video game and soundtrack, and music placements in multiple video games and tech spaces, Good Kid is on the ascent, and it is only a matter of time before the rest of the world takes notice.
