Review – Kids in America

The English newcomer Kim Wilde is the first female performer in synthpop, made popular by Visage with ‘Fade to grey’. Sitting snugly between disco and new wave, Kim sings with an emotionless cool voice the accessible song with original hall effects. In the middle of the song a bombastic electronic sound painting fascinates. The B-side ‘Tuning in tuning on’ sounds as strong as the other side.
