The French duo Kids Return of Adrien Rozé and Clément Savoye have released their debut album Forever Melodies via Ekleroshock/Hamburger Records (Polo & Pan, Andrea Laszlo de Simone). The album features ten tracks that touch on “breakups, friendship, love, physical anguish, and growing up”. It’s a soundtrack of Adrien and Clément’s lives.
The single “Am I A Fool ?,” previews the album with an upbeat sound surrounding themes of “anxious feelings of self-doubt”. Previously released singles include “Lost In Los Angeles,” “I Will Wait For You,” “Forever,” “Orange Mountains,” “Our Love,” and “Melody.”
The name Kids Return comes from the Takeshi Kitano film by the same name, one that childhood friends Adrien and Clément immersed themselves in after being quarantined together in Paris in April of 2020, following a “failed escape to Los Angeles”.
They pulled inspiration from the film, as well as from the soundtrack by Joe Hisaishi, which concerns the story of two friends facing difficult life choices at the pivotal moment of adulthood.
