Already Polling Strongly at new music specialty shows across this great land of ours, and now also The Current/Minneapolis’ ‘Song Of The Week,’ comes Kiwi Jr.’s More than timely, and out of the gate kinda memorable, “Undecided Voters” from the Toronto band, newly signed to Sub Pop!
“We all know UNDECIDED VOTERS: democracy’s driftwood, the third planks in the flotsam that purple the pie chart, always on sight and never a part of the scene. Placing imminent demise neatly to one side, Kiwi Jr. concentrate on the Real Issues: the terrible alliance between King Crab and the timezones; 3D printing causing mass sculptor redundancies; and the playlist at the Duane Reade. After all, who is it we’re really voting for: Spartacus or the dead?”—Kiwi Jr.
Sub Pop first became acquainted with Kiwi Jr.’s music via the band’s debut, 2019’s “Football Money”. The album released by Canadian label Mint Records and eventually internationally in January 2020 through Persona Non Grata/Kiwi Club, was released to Unanimous International Praise.
Kiwi Jr. is Jeremy Gaudet (mic, guitar), Brohan Moore (drums), Mike Walker (bass), and Brian Murphy (guitar).
