REVENGE OF THE UGLY KIDS CLUB
Nashville Based Indie Group, Ugly Kids Club, Release First EP on iTunes
Los Angeles, CA – Minimalistic rock duo, Ugly Kids Club have just released their debut self
titled EP on iTunes. The Nashville based team released their debut on iTunes and Amazon as
well as a limited edition of cassettes for those indie music collectors out there. The duo deem
their music as a mixture of grungy rock and roll infused with electronic beats. Deriving their
influence from bands like Sleigh Bells, The Kills and M83, their music is a unique blend of their
individual personalities and ingenuity all their own.
The two were brought together by the fates as Aliegh Shields pursued a solo project with
her other musical half, Steve Wilson (The Juliana Theory and Jonezetta). The connection was
undeniable during the collaboration creating a desire to join together permanently. Blended
with the balance of Yin and Yang, Aliegh and Steve (respectively) are able to bring a dark but
mysterious essence into a catchy pop undertone creating a beautiful balance that is, Ugly Kids
The standout singles like, “My Soul” and “Sheepskin,” along with the rest of the EP are simply
magnetic and after first listen could be described as obsessive art rock with catchy lyrics
and industrial, dissonant sounds sprinkled throughout. Aleigh’s lusty voice challenges the
instrumentation to keep up with her as Steven’s melodies compliment each track with ease. After
watching their videos, Aleigh’s sex appeal is obvious with every note and is showcased almost
perfectly in, “Diamonds In Your Fire”.
Ugly Kids Club has been busy at work to bring its fans this self titled EP on limited edition
cassettes. For those of you born after the 90’s, you may need some schooling as to what this
contraption might be. For everyone else, bust out that walkman with pride. Each of the singles
are also accompanied with a corresponding video that can be viewed on their YouTube channel.
