Kids Return is first of all about a deep friendship of Adrien Rozé and Clément Savoye since their childhood. They met each other at the age of 13 in Paris. Like in the film of the same name of the Japanese director Takeshi Kitano, the French duo's project speaks to us of the depth contained in the false naivety of childhood and the evocative power of nostalgia when it blurs the line between joy and sadness.
The sound of Kids Return can be found somewhere between the Mamas and the Papas, the orchestrations of Vladimir Cosma and the modesty of Joe Hisaishi's soundtracks. It draws on the energy of Blur and the vocal harmonies of MGMT, while revisiting these Anglo-Saxon influences with the precision and the delicacy and the arrangements of the band Air. The result is a romantic and melancholic melody, a laboratory of emotions that can be thought of in images.
