of Verona “Kids in America”

Kim Wilde’s 1981 debut single, “Kids in America” entertains the conjecture of a darker time, with alt pop/electro soul, three piece of Verona.

The seminal 80s hit recast a wide sonic vessel of creeping ambients and melody in murmur; lead singer Mandi Perkins’ poring rendition, struts and frets her 3 minutes 36 seconds upon the band’s expertly crafted stage. Full of percussive sound and distant fury, much of Dillion Pace’s instrumentation deftly shrouded by EQ and set deep in layers of reverb. The pride, pomp and circumstance of Jeff Sojka’s glorious drum work, adds drama and depth to the mini pop odyssey.


With many an pop act keeping it on the down low, the sheer cinematic scale and epic overtones of the LA based trio’s music, makes for an inspiring, if at times almost overwhelming listening experience.


Set speakers Olympus high! Cry havoc and press play! “We’re the kids in America! We’re the kids in America! Everybody live for the music-go-round!”. Our revels now are ended.
