Captain Kidd – Wild

Captain Kidd

Captain Kidd are a product of the ever-growing Columbus, Ohio music scene. The psychedelic pop infused 4-piece returns after the soulful, chill vibes of singles “Stay” and “Wild,” with their newest track “Bleed.” Propelled by the success of their first single Freaky Love, Captain Kidd’s evolution has taken them from the dive clubs of northeast and central Ohio, to supporting the likes of Glass Animals, Capital Cities, Wiz Khalifa, and Griz at some of the country’s premier music festivals.

Captain Kidd can be characterized by spacey synths blended with sultry vocals. The band has captured the attention of listeners from New York to New Zealand. This dynamic mixture of song writing elements has cultivated a sound that has been described as “fresh,” “dance-able,” and “celestial.”
Captain Kidd is coming off a stellar release of “Wild,” which premiered on December 8, 2017. Since then, the song has garnered some serious buzz with its addition to Spotify’s New Music Friday (2.4 Million Followers) and charting on Spotify’s USA Viral Top 50. The song also secured the #1 spot on Hype Machine’s Top 50 Popular List and was featured on I Heart Radio’s “6 Songs We’re Obsessed With This Week.” Captain Kidd is…
Nathan Baumgard – Guitar/Lead Vocals

“Bleed” was the product of a weekend-long cabin getaway to middle of nowhere southern Ohio.  We initially went to the cabin to work on a couple of existing ideas we had been struggling with, but ended up writing several new ideas via some impromptu jam sessions – one of which turned into this track. We wanted “Bleed” to feel nostalgic, like a fond look back on some forgotten, perfect summer day that really never existed except in our memory of it.

Psychedelic pop infused four-piece, Captain Kidd once again showcase their songwriting capabilities with ‘LIMIT’. ‘Indietronica’

Speaking of the track, they explain

“Limit” is our most collaborative effort as a band yet. We bounced a ton of ideas off each other and really stuck to our decision to not overthink anything, but rather let the song develop naturally as those ideas poured out. We had fun with this one. We were watching 007 Casino Royale and thought, “hey let’s write a James Bond dance song.””
