“We started writing 'waiting room' during the first lockdown of 2020, when we could first start rehearsing again. Though we hadn’t seen each other - nor anyone else - in months, we felt exactly the same way. We poured our frustrations into a song. 'waiting room' is about losing yourself in isolation. Feeling like we’d missed a part of our youth, we wanted to finish the song at the end of 2021, during the current lockdown. We teamed up with Bram Vanparys (The Bony King of Nowhere) to capture that feeling of loneliness, desperation, and “ugh” on record.”
With this single, Kids With Buns also announce they will support Balthazar on their tour in The Netherlands, March 2022 in Tivoli Vredenburg, Amare, De Oosterpoort and Westergasfabriek. See dates below.
In 2020 Kids With Buns released their first track and immediately became the face of the yearly campaign of '1712', the Belgian violence helpline, with their synonymously titled song touching upon sexual intimidation.
After winning De Nieuwe Lichting 2021, their single 'bad grades' hit number one in Studio Brussel’s De Afrekening and amassed over one million streams worldwide. Live, Kids With Buns translates their music in a disarming way and has, so far, captivated audiences in Belgium and The Netherlands (Lokerse Feesten, OLT Rivierenhof, Botaniek Live…). In March 2021 Kids With Buns covers 'She' (Dodie) to support the queer community after the senseless violence in Beveren.
In October they shared a new single 'untitled', that talks about "the growing self-centredness in society, which makes us feel the kind of loneliness and alienation that you can't put into words. Now we start 2022 well with 'waiting room'"!
