Bio

"The latest, “I’m Already Falling”, finds them on fine form; showcasing their trademark minimal beats and awesome-sauce hooks." - Listen Before You Buy "They keep coming up with the synth-groove gems that are irresistible in some small way each time. With “Younger,” it’s when the beat kicks in almost two minutes through the song that makes me want to come back and listen again." - The Wounded Jukebox "Sydney’s Contrakids seem incapable of making a song that I won’t listen to. Maybe it’s tapping in to my long dormant need to dance, but everything they send our way ends up getting repeated incessantly. Most recently they sent over this song called “Younger,” which also capitalizes on my growing sense of nostalgia. Contrakids really know how to break a person down." - Tympanogram "We’re generally not to big on heavily-tweaked vocal stylings, but the Contrakids have managed to create a unique and thoughtful genre of sound. Definitely keep your eyes out for these cats! We’ve got a feeling big things are headed their way." - The Getdownnn

I can imagine some teen girls getting more than a bit obsessed with this kind of sorta-urban emotional electronic stuff.
