I found Tirman Kid last year, through Soundcloud, and was instantly hooked to their sugary and ethereal brand of dream pop and they're from Buenos Aires, Argentina. You don't hear much from our South American neighbors. Comprised of Martin Dick on guitar and vocals, Agustin Slapak on second guitar, Santiago Carbajal on bass, and Joaquin Casalia on drums, Tirman Kid is the answer to your prayers if your prayers were to find a cool new band from Argentina. Side note: "Tirman Kid" is an anagram of Martin Dick, the brainchild of the whole operation. Their first release, Fun, came in 2013 and featured 13 killer and layered pop tracks with plenty of twee, power pop, and retro sheen. Their latest release is A Mind Trick, a 10-song journey down a dreamy and romantic avenue full of whimsy and tons of sentimentality. Touching on themes of loss, regret, longing, and a general angst about relationships, Tirman Kid embrace their youth and speak to it. Punky songs like "Where Should I Go" are true toe-tappers but Tirman Kid also knows how to slow it down. "Again" is a mellow ballad that would be perfect for a prom or homecoming high school dance slow song. You can check out the song and video below.

Also make sure to head to their Bandcamp to download both their albums for free or you could also donate a couple of bucks too.
