The Battery Kids
Genre:Horrorpop, Pop/rock, Rock
Described as "the rock’n’roll soundtrack to a Tim Burton movie", The Battery Kids have their sights set on the black hole that lies somewhere between garage rock and dark pop. Having released their debut album We’re Just Hanging While the Rats All Gather and the Vultures Circle Over Head to a full house at Jive on 11 June 2010, the band has recently made the move from Adelaide to the vibrant rock’n’roll scene in Melbourne.
Exploding onto the Adelaide scene a few years ago, The Battery Kids treat every show like it could be their last, relentlessly pushing the boundaries of their live performance. They have built up a solid reputation and gained support from some of Australia's hottest acts including Victorian rockers The Vasco Era and The Whiskey Go Gos, Sydney’s The Holidays, Brisbane’s John Steel Singers and The Rocket Smiths and classic Adelaide bands such as The Hot Lies and Special Patrol.
2010 was a massive year for The Battery Kids, with both the release of the album and a national tour. We’re Just Hanging While the Rats All Gather and the Vultures Circle Over Head received strong airplay on Nova’s Adelaide show and local radio station Three D.
In 2011, The Battery Kids are ready to unleash their raw energy live show on their new hometown. With a new EP already in production and a live album just released as a digital download, the band is focusing on quickly building a reputation as one of Melbourne’s favourite live acts.
