FRESH: ‘Say Yes’ – KiD RAiN

“Say Yes” to KiD RAiN!

Exciting UK based songwriter and producer Dan Reynard announces his new project, KiD RAiN, with the release of high energy sing-along indie pop banger “Say Yes”, mixed by Will Reeves (Migos, G-Eazy) and out today! KiD RAiN is no stranger to the pop scene, having previously joined The Vamps on their arena tour where he cut his teeth as a frontman and performer.

Taking his undeniable live experience Reynard has crafted a sound with flavours of Lauv, The 1975 and Conan Gray showcasing his irrefutable talent and passion for creating pop hits that could dominate the airwaves and fill venues for years to come. “’Say Yes’ has a very personal spot in my heart because believe it or not, by the time I was 19 years young I had already proposed to 12 people and 2 animals. They all liked me I think but apparently the “timing wasn’t right” haha you get it. Haven’t seen them since but it’s cool. Anyway this song is about realising you’ve found “the one” and praying they don’t reject you like the 12 other people and 2 animals before them”.

KiD RAiN’s vibrant personality is reflected in the incredible music video which was spontaneously shot in the most colourful village in the world whilst on holiday in Bali with best friend and MTV videographer/director Alex Boulton. “When we saw that Kampung Warna Warni Jodipan (Village Of Colour) was only a one hour flight away we booked flights for the next morning and planned the storyboard on the way!” Inspired by the favelas of Rio, every square inch of the rainbow village is coated in colour. “Say Yes” showcases what the future of pop music sounds like – and it’s very colourful!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
