PATH OF RESISTANCE...
Breaking boundaries of genre with four to the floor tech rhythms, fiery percussion & live tap dance beats set against a backdrop of uplifting and finely crafted songs of positivity & resistance, Kid Hyena bring their self styled 'Alt Hop' show to you.
Founded on the backstreets of Barcelona and influenced by old school folk & hip hop sounds, alternative rock, experimental and dance music, the bands life began with an exploratory period of intensive recording where they released three albums over two and a half years.
They began with 2017’s acoustic statement ‘Rebel Heart Club’ and followed up in 2018 with musical collage ‘B Side Fantasy'.
Just before the pandemic began the band completed their third album 'Gravitate' which showcased a new 'Electro Alt Hop' sound with songs that received radio coverage on amongst others BBC Essex & BBC Introducing.
Then came Covid and with one member also hit by long Covid, 18 months passed with little activity.
In September 2021 they purchased a motorhome and sought to put the pandemic firmly behind them and hit the road to do what they love the most.
Since then they have played countless amounts of shows here there & everywhere including the Isle of Wight & Glastonbury festivals.
Now based in the UK they've got several projects currently on the go including the evolving percussive 'Alt - Hop' sounds of their unique live show, a musical graphic novel, a new record label and new material being recorded - as ever the band cease to remain static and continue to look for new innovative ways forward with their music.
