Kid Zeus’ new single THE GUN is here and marks their foray into a more mature song-writing style.
Combining their rock roots with synth layers and an added orchestral element, Kid Zeus delve deep into exploring the boundaries of pop music while still striving to deliver musical moments that appeal to a broader audience.
THE GUN is inspired by the “LA Dream” and explores themes of desire, hope, and big city loneliness. Singer Adam Rennie unwraps metaphors and ‘rejects the standard pop format’ while ‘creating something cinematic and grandiose, something memorable’.
Kid Zeus travelled to Sandy Hollow to film the music video for THE GUN, with Adam playing a starring role in the production. Kid Zeus was lucky enough to pair up with the creative genius of Paste Studios as well as the professional drone pilots of Alicanto Media to produce a music video that is both visually stunning as well as complimentary to the narrative of the song. The video explores what it means to be a hero in your own right set to the faded golden backdrop of the Australian landscape.
Kid Zeus returned to the music scene in early 2015 after taking a small hiatus from their tireless gigging schedule to focus on their composition and live sound. Their debut single, FLOWERS, off their eponymous second EP was met with praise and ensured a sold out show at Sydney’s Brighton Up Bar as well as a month long residency in Manly’s prestigious Moonshine Bar.
The Gun marks a more mature sound for the band, one that appeals to all age groups and sonic proclivities and ensures that Kid Zeus will be the band to watch in 2015.
