Sheila And The Kit
Homeschool Sweethearts is the debut single by fresh new Dutch synth pop band Sheila And The Kit.
Two years ago, bandmembers Bo and Suzanne felt like starting a live act with music that they themselves would want to dance to throughout the night. They locked themselves in the studio and soon the first ideas emerged. With help from Ralf and Chris these ideas got transformed into a stellar set of neon-laced ear candy, that now, two years later, is ready to be shared with the world.
With their DIY mentality the band toured this summer along the surf spots of the French west coast to try out their new material on the local audience.
All bandmembers have earned their stripes in the music industry: Bo Koek (awkward i, Mass Electric, Kopna Kopna), Suzanne Kipping (Club Gewalt, ADAM), Ralf Pouw (LUWTEN, Wooden Saints) and Chris Doyle from the USA (Tczeebo, Harvey Eyeballs).
To Suzanne, who is also active in theater and film (but more news about that in the near future), both the music and style of Charlie XCX is a big influence, which can be clearly heard. But also think of artist like Tove Lo and Holychild.
Homeschool Sweathearts is released on 15 september 2017 on BERT music (a division of TCBYML).
