Drawing inspiration from fast paced indie rock bands from early 2000s such as Bloc Party and Tokyo Police Club, the five members of Toronto-based Good Kid have been playing music together since 2015.
Jacob, Jon, David, Michael and Nick met at the University of Toronto, where the five of them were studying computer science. Michael (bass) and Nick (vocals) met in a tutorial while coding with each other. They became friends and started writing and recording demos that would eventually become Good Kid songs.
Today the band has released three singles including Nomu and Witches and is preparing to release their first EP in the summer of 2018.
