A lockdown collaboration formed virtually in the Summer of 2021, The Lightning Kids are singer-songwriter Emma Ballantine, guitarist/producer Darryn McHardie (aka Cinematix1993) and songwriter/producer Jonny Spalding.

Described as the ‘Retrowave London Grammar’ & ‘Synthwave 2.0’, The Lightning Kids have strong Synthwave roots, however with undertones of British alternative bands like The Cure & The 1975, as well as nods to great Californian records by The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac.

Following the success of debut album ‘All Of Those Nights’ in late 2022 (gathering over 1m views on Tik Tok, #1 placement on German and UK Alternative Album charts on iTunes and over 350,000 album streams on Spotify), The Lightning Kids return with a special project of remixes and collaborations on the same set of songs.

‘FM’ is an 8-track remix album featuring some of The Lightning Kids' favourite artists including Sunglasses Kid, Cassetter, The Last Concorde, Kidburn, Adam Ford & Francci. 2 bonus tracks come from UK Techno DJ Amy Lauren and Belgium producer The Hawkins Kid.

Based around a theme of night-driving through Los Angeles in the mid-1980s whilst listening to late-night FM radio stations, across chilled-Jams (Motel), 80s power-MOR (California), Funk-Dance (Cool, The Boys Of Summer) and futuristic-synthwave (Ride), ‘FM’ re-imagines some of The Lightning Kids incredible debut œuvre.
