Kids With Buns have been nominated for two Music Industry Awards, in the categories 'group' and 'alternative'. Kids With Buns released their well-received full debut album 'out of place' on October 13th. This Thursday December 7th, they are playing a SOLD OUT release concert at Ancienne Belgique.

The kids already started collecting votes with great enthusiasm, as seen on their TikTok and Instagram, where they hit the streets to estimate their chances. You can vote online until Sunday December 10th.

About 'out of place'
A candid coming-of-age record about teenage angst and the struggles of growing up in a still too often homophobic world. Nevertheless, you don't have to be queer to identify with the album. “Daughter”, for instance, is about trying so hard to conform to what your parents and friends expect of you that you end up neglecting your own happiness. The chorus is a reply to those expectations: 'You've got to learn to let me loose, I'm not the person that you think to tick all the boxes.' “Bathroom Floor”, the album's first single, is about comparing yourself to friends who already bought a house and have a 'serious job’. It’s also about being afraid to admit that you don't have your shit together. “Clutter”, on the other hand, is about isolating yourself because you are over-stimulated, with the result of you becoming so lonely and lifeless that you no longer have energy for even the simplest everyday things. 'The glass that I broke four weeks ago, it's still on the floor, it's part of the room now,' sings Marie.

Friendship, heartbreak and falling in love - often for the first time - are also major themes on the album. “Stubborn Mind” revolves around an argument with a significant other in which you are too headstrong to admit you are wrong. 'You are sabotaged by your own stubbornness. If you don't listen to the other person, you risk losing them. But in the heat of the moment, we sometimes forget that.' “How Bad Could It Be” is a dialogue between two best friends who fall in love with each other but do not dare to express it. Because, what if it's not mutual? And above all, what will people think?
