Deaton Chris Anthony – Sid The Kid

Smart, bubbly bops abound.

Label: Dirty Hit Records
Released: 29th July 2022

Deaton Chris Anthony may have credits with some of alternative pop’s biggest names, but he’s not hiding behind them as he strides out under his own name with ‘Sid The Kid’.

Smart, bubbly bops abound, from the bratty nursery rhyme of opening statement ‘I Don’t Wanna Go To School’ to the sweeping ‘Friends Don’t Hurt One Another’. beabadoobee team-up ‘iScream’ drips with swagger and sass, while ‘Go!’ breaks and glitches with satisfying aplomb.

Easily slipping into the echelon of slightly mad, never shy future pop, Deaton Chris Anthony might not yet have found that one song that will break through, but the promise is obvious.
