Feed The Kid sing about their home town of Manchester, in their new single ‘In The City’.

Before you jump-the-gun and think, ‘Oh no, here’s another band moaning about where they come from!’, this song is not at all doom and gloom.

Sure, lyrics touch upon the rainy city that makeĀ a grown man cry, but the delivery of the vocals from Curtis Taylor believably make you grasp the message within the words.

With a wonderfully placed break in the middle, the song packs a lot of interesting and powerful moments into its tight 2 minutes and 49 seconds running time.

There are threads of early Kings of Leon, The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys floating around throughout the track. They have the fresh-cut sound of a band with a lot to offer in the future. I suspect that ‘In The City’ is but one of many bright stars in the sky for Feed The Kid.
