Biography

London-based indie quartet Kid Wave began in 2013 as the project of Swedish singer/songwriter Lea Emmery. After leaving her hometown of Norrköping, Sweden in 2011, Emmery spent her first couple of years in the U.K. honing her lush, summery, shoegaze-influenced sound and releasing a handful of early tracks on her Bandcamp page under the Kid Wave banner. Slowly she began assembling a proper band, first enlisting old friend and fellow Swedish expat Mattias Bhatt on guitar. Australian transplant Serra Petale was teaching drums at the same music school where Emmery studied, and eventually British bassist Harry Deacon joined to round out this globally diverse group. They signed with influential London indie Heavenly Recordings, which released their debut EP, Gloom, in 2014. Elements of harmonic power pop, '90s-inspired indie, and melodic shoegaze peppered the four-song EP, which was followed a year later by the band's full-length debut, Wonderlust. In 2016, Emmery relocated to the U.S., bringing a new batch of songs to Los Angeles, where she began working with local musicians on a revamped version of Kid Wave. Debuting a new single, "Everything Changes," in February 2017, Kid Wave spent the spring touring the U.S. with the Shins. ~ Timothy Monger
