Kids Return


Kids Return is first and foremost a great story of friendship between Adrien Rozé and Clément Savoye. Like Japanese director Takeshi Kitano's film from which it takes its name, the French duo's project explores the depth within the false naivety of childhood, and the evocative power of nostalgia when it blurs the line between joy and sadness.

It was their early teenage years when Adrien Rozé and Clément Savoye met and got their first experiences in music. With the band project Teeers, the two got to put into practice what they’d previously only managed to form in their heads – and then along came the pandemic. As with so many people, this signaled a new start for the duo, but an unexpectedly successful one. New ideas grew from weeks and months of isolation, while sources of inspiration were gleaned from books and films. Takeshi Kitano’s cult film « Kids Return » then immediately served as the eponym for a new project that makes eclectic use of sound design: Air and Archive, MGMT and Foxygen, Ennio Morricone and Vladimir Kosma supply the ideas that Kids Return used to make their debut album « Forever Melodies » (2022) a vibrating feast for the senses. So this party finally signals the end of a search for melodic anthems of summer, full of nostalgia and bitter-sweet longing. Like their own idols, the duo are now creating their own classics that will still bring tears to our eyes in ten years’ time.
