My KUTX: Migrant Kids

Posted by on Jan 6, 2017

Almost halfway through their guest DJ set, Austin trio Migrant Kids segue two songs together that pretty much sum up their aesthetic: S U R V I V E’s grainy synthscape right into Fiona Apple’s “On The Bound.” Migrant Kids exist somewhere on this musical plane, experimental but with a big, brash pop heart. Miguel Ojeda, John Zakoor, and Bryan O’Flynn debuted in 2013 but hit a high two years later with its Primordial Soup EP, earning a Black Fret grant for its work. The band is back to work on Saturday, January 7, playing a Free Week show at Stubb’s, and you can get to know the band a little bit better this week on My KUTX. Tune in Saturday at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.
