Sydney teenage punks, The Kids, have been on a non-stop rollercoaster ride since releasing their debut single School back in February.
They opened for hard rock legends LA Guns across Australia and New Zealand, supported Guns N’ Roses keyboardist, Dizzy Reed at his jam-packed album launch show in Sydney, opened the inaugural
Meltdown Festival and got played on Triple J’s Short Fast Loud!
Now they are ready to hit the road again and have just released an awesome animated video for
“I Just Wanna Be Happy”
The plight of teenage kids across the globe, I Just Wanna Be Happy, tells the story of life’s ups and downs for kids living in today’s world. For all of societies pressures, family, friends, social media and school swirling around your head, sometimes all you want to do is fly a kite in the park and be happy! Life might be a bully but you’ve just got to look that bully in the eye, smile and ‘stand for happiness’!
I Just Wanna Be Happy is 2 minutes and 8 seconds of uptempo angst wrapped up in an old school punk rock vibe that will make you jump around the room and remember what it’s like to be in their shoes.
