Based in Nashville TN, Ugly Kids Club is the music collaboration of Steve Wilson (producer, songwriter, guitarist) and Aliegh Shields (vocalist, lyricist, guitarist). The pair formed in early 2011 when they discovered their shared love for
minimalistic rock duos such as Sleigh Bells, Crystal Castles, and The Kills.
Steve is a Grammy Nominated rock producer and songwriter by day working with bands such as The Juliana Theory and Jonezetta. Aliegh is a bartender who grew up on stage and in her bedroom teaching herself guitar. Their contrasting musical backgrounds helped form their unique sound of crunchy beats, fuzzy guitars, and undertones of synth-pop.
UKC have been releasing one video for each song for their debut video EP. The music will also be available December 2011 on a limited edition cassette with download card. The old cassette player in your car may just become your new best friend this winter.
