Bio

Infectiously fun and outrageously different, punters have coined the genre’s ‘Quirk folk’ and ‘Hipster blues’ for Adelaide band The Coconut Kids . They've been wooing audiences across Australia and beyond with their own blend of French-influenced folk using ukulele, brass, bass, keys, violin, mandolin and powerful vocals. The kids' unique sound will have you dancing one minute and in tears the next.

They've cemented ourselves as festival favourites playing across Australia - Caloundra (QLD), Winter Bello (NSW), Wintermoon (QLD), Folk In Broke (NSW), Blenheim (SA), Adelaide Fringe (SA) and showcased at the globally renowned music festival South By South West in Austin, Texas earlier this year.

Downright catchy, heartfelt and loving having a laugh along the way, they are riding a wave of buzz this year as they gear up for our 2018 European tour.

"Downright infectious these are songs that invite the listener into warm rich vibrant environments" - Beach Sloth

"A powerful Adele-like voice that will be sure to blow you away" - Independent Clauses (US)

"The buzz around this band is at bee-hive proportions" - Scenstr Magazine

"The Coconut Kids' quirky indie folk separates them from the rest" - themusic.com.au

"Lest you think they're one dimensional... there's more to this folk band than their sunny exterior" - theregoesthefear.com
