London-based Kid Wave is the brainchild of Swedish singer/songwriter teen Lea Emmery. After leaving her hometown in Sweden in 2011, Emmery put up a handful of demos on a Bandcamp page and immediately gained interest from industry.
She signed with influential London indie Heavenly Recordings, which released the debut EP, Gloom, followed a year later by the full-length debut, Wonderlust. In 2016, Emmery spent a majority of the year in the U.S., bringing a new batch of songs to Los Angeles and spent the spring and summer touring the U.S. and Europe with the Shins. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
