Little Kid: “Losing”

By: Jack Anderson

It’s an almost demeaning handle that’s pretty easy to brush off on face value, but Toronto four-piece Little Kid is anything but immature when it comes to their songwriting skills. Having started in 2011, Little Kid spent their twenty-teens carving out shoegaze-leaning soundscape relatively under the radar, although the talented quartet has already amassed their own loyal following and shared the stage with the likes of Car Seat Headrest within that timeframe.

Today Little Kid shares Transfiguration Highway, an exploration of life’s dynamics along the road between calm and chaos, fascinating and bleak, silent and deafening. And at just shy of a dozen tunes, Transfiguration Highway truly does transport you into band’s van along the way and engulf you into its meditation on movement. Check out the full stretch if you have time, and if not, at least soak up the Pavement vibes on “Losing”!
