No Money Kids

Es sind tatsächlich nur zwei Musiker, Félix Matschulat (Voc. / Guit) und JM Pelatan (Bass/ Machines / Samples), die seit über drei Jahren sehr schnörkelosen Rock und überbordenden Blues mit einer riesen Portion Energie auf die Bühne bringen. Mit ihrem ganz eigenständigen Sound, der irgendwie entfernt an die The Black Keys erinnert, aber an sich auf eine besondere Art frisch und neu klingt, was man diesem Musikgenre eigentlich gar nicht mehr zugetraut hätte. Nach weit über 100 Konzerten, diversen Newcomer-Auszeichnungen, unglaublich ästhetischen Videos und drei Veröffentlichungen, wagen sie nun auch endlich den Sprung rüber nach Deutschland.

No convenient shortcuts, no glitzy concepts but real scathing rock music. No Money Kids philosophy is clear : they give no quarter. Shuffle blues, furious guitars and layers of electronic music, lo-fi stage set and vintage aesthetics, the Kids cut into the living flesh in a savage way. Their gold rush only lasts 3 years. Born out of a studio meeting in 2013, the parisian duo formed by Félix Matschulat (vocals-guitar) and JM Pelatan (bass-machines-samples) don’t mess around and put out their first EP " Old Man " in March 2014. The electrical duo got into the finals of many springboards (Paris Young Talents, Give Me Five, Solidays/RATP Springboard, Play It Indie...), drew attention of the press and battled through many gigs and festivals (Blues-sur- Seine, Aurores Montréal, Culture Aux Quais...). For their first album "I don't trust you" in October 2015, the band started to work with several professionals such as tour producer Nueva Onda, editor Alter-K and label Roy Music. With more than 100 concerts, the Kids got older and wiser. From now on, it has to be mindblowing, as their new album "Hear the Silence" (March 2017), in which they sketch social misery : modern slavery ("Shot the master"), rebellion ("Loaded Gun"), love ("Take me to your home"), mourning ("Man Down"). Larry Clark’s generation kids. All these rock anthems seduced many music supervisors in France and overseas (Puma, the TV show " Night Shift " and "Bandshee", the movies "Misconduct" with Al Pacino & Anthony Hopkins or "Baby, Baby, Baby!" with Bradley Cooper & Jessica Alba. The proof that the Kids aren’t always little brats.
