Kid Fourteen 'Dream Kids Never Sleep'
Limited run of 250 physical copies of the album.
Kid Fourteen is the solo project of Khodor Ellaik, a punk musician born and bred in Beirut with a range of influences that includes Joe The Clash, Alan Vega, and more recently Sleaford Mods and Alex Huang from Dirty Beaches. Between 2010 and 2014, Ellaik was the frontman of Beirut Scum Society and short-lived post-punk/no-wave outfit Friendly Faces.
Both bands split in acrimonious circumstances. Ellaik adopted a solo aesthetic using a small assortment of synthesizers and drum machines, in order to shape what became Kid Fourteen's trademark sound, an impressive blend of punk sensibilities and noise-pop elements.
He has performed in several European festivals, including “Incubate” in Holland and “Waveteef” in Belgium. Back home in Beirut, he has organized successful concerts for prominent international bands such as Xiu Xiu and Dirty Beaches.Kid Fourteen’s debut album “Dream Kids Never Sleep” was self-released digitally in June 2016.
