Stop. Everything you thought you knew about Kid Koala? That was yesterday. And Kid Koala doesn’t do yesterday. With projects ranging from a soundtrack to the breakdance-battle video game Floor Kids to touring The Storyville Mosquito with 14 performers (puppetry! miniature sets! a string trio!) Kid Koala constantly evolves. Kid Koala’s return to Block Heater marks another evolution, this time with Californian singer, multi-instrumentalist and artist, Lealani. The video for high-octane anthem 'Things Are Gonna Change' [featuring Lealani] from Kid Koala’s latest release Creatures of the Late Afternoon was an official selection at Annecy International Animation Festival 2022. It’s filled with DJ equipment come to life and shattered vinyl records spelling out: 'We are here to let you know: too long things have stayed the same - be warned, things are gonna change. Keep pushing it!' Pushing it is what Kid Koala does: pushing himself and his collaborators towards new vehicles for storytelling. After Kid Koala saw Lealani perform in Hamburg he exclaimed: “She is a creative force of nature. If you ever get a chance to see her perform, GO!” Now’s your chance, people - this dynamic duo has conspired to inspire.
