Kid Cadaver is an American neon pop band formed in 2012 between Los Angeles, California natives Raymond Venta (lead vocals) / (bass guitar), Jeremy Harris (vocals) / (lead guitar) and Kenzo Cardenas (drums). The Kid Cadaver moniker was adopted by the group to represent the process of growing older and losing sight of ones inner youth.
Origins and Formation
In late 2012 Raymond Venta, Jeremy Harris, and Kenzo Cardenas were nothing more than a group of mutual friends who had run into each other while frequenting a local LA studio with various projects. It was the simultaneous dissolution of their former groups that led to the formation of Kid Cadaver. They would later enter into The Lab Studios in Los Angeles, California with High School friend Frankie Siragusa to begin crafting their unique blend of Indie rock and Neon pop.
Kid Cadaver EP (2013)
Kid Cadaver released their debut self-titled EP in the spring of 2013. The album quickly achieved success with support from Los Angeles, California based radio stations KROQ-FM 106.7 and Alt 98.7FM featuring "Teach You the Tongue" on their Local Artists shows. Soon after the trio began playing a rigorous touring cycle throughout the west coast in support of the release, further refining their definitive sound and frenetic live show.
Roam EP (2015)
Kid Cadaver released their second EP, Roam, in the winter of 2015. It was preceded by the release of their single "Keep Well" which was premiered via Alternative Press and widely received amongst fans and listeners. The bands current sound has often been closely aligned with the neon pop subgenre. "If neon pop-punk had a new wave revival, this trio would likely lead the pack." Their sophomore release has also been associated with the Pop punk genre. "Kid Cadaver's energetic indie-pop is reminiscent not only of early-2000s punk but also of more recent favorites such as Tokyo Police Club and Passion Pit, complete with infectious gang vocals that uncontrollably inspire singing along. Notable singles include both "Keep Well" and "New Friends" which have both been featured for a multitude of weeks on Los Angeles, California based radio station KROQ-FM 106.7 FM.
