For this month’s ChicagoVerseUniteD cover story, every day in January will preview a different local artist’s plans for 2011. Today: Kid, You’ll Move Mountains!
Kid, You’ll Move Mountains made themselves known with the group’s earnest but accelerated guitar-laden debut Loomings, one of 2009′s strongest local releases. Though the band has yet to hit the studio for that album’s follow up, vocalist and guitarist Jim Hanke already has an outlook of what to expect from the soon-to-be-recorded effort. ”We’re hoping that the new record has some darker elements, as well as some dancier ones,” the frontman informed CVU via email. “I think some of this record is more somber than our previous, while some of it moves a lot more. I know that’s very vague and doesn’t really point to one particular direction, but we’re extremely excited about this one, whereas the last one I think the motto was just to get it done so we could have an album. I believe we’re more focused this time.” For a preview of the band’s new material, check out “Me In Memphis” below, or find much more unreleased KYMM media at this recent CVU post.
