Psychedelic jungle rock. Quite the description, but man does that hit the nail on the head for Migrant Kids; their music is a transcendental power trip with harmony bursting vocals, contagious dance grooves, and a psych sound capable of melting minds. Making their home base in Austin after moving from the Michigan and Ohio, Migrant Kids is made up of cousins John Zakoor & Miguel Ojeda, and fellow midswestern homer Bryan O’Flynn. Their music is infectious when listening to, carrying psychedelic overtones similar to Bright Light Social Hour.
Migrant Kids stopped by Studio 1A and played a set of some of their music for us. The band will also be having their release party for their EP, Primordial Soup, Friday, May 13th at Cheer Up Charlie’s, cover is $5 so be sure to get there early!
