kids in cars

http://www.myspace.com/thekidsincars Kids in Cars hail from the quaint Shire of Leicester, England.
Having taken time to define their sound since the dew fall of spring 07, seeing if it fits, like a nice cloth cap, or toasty warm beanie. Kids believe they have now found 'that' sound. A combination of breakbeat, pop punk and garage indie neatly entwined as one. Kids in Cars are Dom Jewitt, Laura Wykes, Jon Freeman and James Stafford ..."we don't know where we're going...we can't see our the car" Kids 07
