Kid Astray is gearing up for a new album release with a new single ‘No Easy Way Out’ – premiered this week on the Line of Best Fit.
Writes The Line of Best Fit: – ‘No Easy Way Out’ is slicker, sleeker, and more radio-ready than their previous work from the very first notes. The song is an unabashed blast of over-the-top pop featuring ecstatic synths, precise musical stops and starts accentuated with distorted guitars, and a vocal melody that will stick in your mind for days to come.

Nylon is also running a feature on the new track. Writes Rachel Perlman: ‘From their exuberant, no-care vibe to their chipper bouncing-off-the-wall beats, there’s no doubt that this indie pop six-piece from Norway is the epitome of fun. It’s the ultimate summer anthem with a little life motivation not-so-hidden between the lines, guaranteed to have you bouncing wherever you go. Even though they’re singing about overcoming life’s obstacles, these guys’ infectious, electro-coated voices will totally get you pumped to work harder and “step out of your comfort zone.” If you bop along to their roller-coaster melodies for long enough, you just might start the coolest dance party ever.’
