Waterloo electro sibling trio turned duo, Kidstreet have made their in Toronto. The duo siblings who make up the synth-pop outfit are drummer Karl Snyder and younger sister Edna on piano and vocals. Kidstreet began with a different sound. They only decided on their present upbeat and uptempo direction last summer.

“We were playing this really depressing-sounding music and no one was dancing. Then, one day we wrote a dance song by accident, and people loved it, so we were like, ‘Oh, this what we need to do!’” remembers Snyder.

Onstage, the band blends electronic elements with live drums, vocals, guitar and synths – while encouraging the crowd to dance.
