Kid Cadaver
From 2013 to 2016, Kid Cadaver’s catchy, hook-heavy structures and energetic shows transformed three San Fernando Valley-based musicians into one of LA’s favorite indie groups. The band amassed an eager following of both fans and critics alike, and held top spots on local radio countdowns (KROQ, Star 98.7) for consecutive single releases. Their style was referred to as “infectious” (LA Weekly) and often earned them comparisons to bands like Tokyo Police Club, stars of the mid-to-late 2000s indie airwaves. Following a relentless local show schedule and two well-received EP releases (Self-Titled-2013 and Roam-2015), the band came to a hiatus in 2016.

Raymond Venta (vocals, guitar) and Kenzo Cardenas (drums) return for the group’s next chapter. Venta has spent two years experimenting with songwriting (he lived out of his van while traveling cross- country to write songs) while supporting local, up-and-coming pop acts (Tillie, LAYNE) in his spare time. Cardenas took on a heavy percussion routine, playing drums for local groups Bedbugs and Super Whatevr (Hopeless Records). Both Venta and Cardenas met briefly as side-project Yume, which explored an effect-driven, dream-pop sound primarily rooted in the 90s.

Kid Cadaver recommences with a few, well-deserved notches in its belt. Fans can count on the wistful, melodic songs (which remains Venta’s forte)that the group is known for—but gang vocals and catchy hooks have been traded for a more introspective, controlled approach to songwriting that can only be earned with age. Ever-ambitious, the band’s upcoming EP, Delude, is set for a 2018 release.
