Good Kid is a band made up of friends who like three of the same things: Music, computers and video games - the latter two being a constant inspiration for music writing and jam sessions. The band was originally formed in Toronto in 2013, consisting of three members - Nick Frosst (vocals), Michael Kozakov (bass/vocals) and Jacob Tsafatinos (guitar). The three met at the University of Toronto in Computer Science where they would later meet Jon Kereliuk (drums) and David Wood (guitar/vocals) - who incidentally is not a computer programmer but is happy to be here.
Fun fact: The band was originally named Bahen Wolf after the University's computer science building, but after a series of name changes - including a brief but wonderful evening as the Spaceship Dinosaurs - Good Kid was finally born.
Many of the band's influences come from early 2000's fast-paced indie rock bands including Bloc Party, The Strokes, and Tokyo Police Club. Other influences include folk legend Johnny Cash, as well as a fascination with the Japanese math-rock band Toe.
