Unicorn Kid. Remember him? That teenage mentalist who injected raw buoyant electricity into dancing feet? The guy that in 2009 we introduced as a 5 minute energy jolt that probably wouldn’t last long, then by December of the same year were naming as One to Watch for 2010? Yes him – the wonder kid that banged out the bleeping pornographically dirty Dream Catcher, a track that we described as ‘the sound of Britain in 2010.’ Remember him?
Well he’s back, releasing his first material of 2011 prior to (finally) releasing an album in 2012. Tidal Rave is the name of the EP and it quite simply couldn’t be more appropriately named; for this is an EP of tsunami like proportions that gets better as each track breaks. You’ll be able to hear each tune from the EP at Breaking More Waves in full over the next three months as Unicorn Kid reveals each of its components, finishing with the hands-in-the-air colossus that is True Love Fantasy in October, which sounds like Nicola Roberts Beat Of My Drum gone raving and has already become one of our saluted tracks of 2011 – possibly even more so that Nicola’s brilliant pop-genius-chart-flop.
True Love Fantasy has received the accolade of being Hottest Record In The World on Zane Lowe’s show on BBC Radio 1 and if you’re coming to Bestival, get your skates on down to the Big Top as soon as the gates open on Thursday afternoon to see the DJ crew that Breaking More Waves leads – The Sunday Best Forum Allstars – put True Love Fantasy through its paces through a massive soundsystem. There is no better way to feel the romance.
Before all that we have the first track from the EP which you can grab totally gratis below, it's called Chrome Lion, and takes the Unicorn Kid chiptune sound to planet rave-pop where all the aliens are dancing like loons with massive smiley faces whilst the DJ blasts out the audio equivalent of pink lasers from a podium on a neon spaceship. Beam us up please - we want some of this.Chrome Lion by ✌ Unicorn Kid ✌
