I had so many jokes lined up for this 16 year old La Roux look-alike boy. Then I listened to the music. Then my jokes seemed not very funny anymore, and I regretted that when I first saw him, La Roux jokes are the first things that popped in my mind.
Zoo Kid is Archy Marshall from East London, and the fact that he’s making music like this at 16 is pretty incredible. If you’ve never heard him before, watch this video and enjoy that “Oh, shit” moment when you first hear him sing. I’ll admit I did one of those half yawns before the end of the song, but since then, I’ve revisited it a few times and it’s definitely going to make it on my next mix. I can see American hipsters falling in love with Zoo Kid. Credit to Will.
