Meet Ryan Filancia, Nathan Magers, and Noah Clark

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ryan Filancia, Nathan Magers, and Noah Clark.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Bitter Kiddos began in 2015 when I began recording what would become the Undead Redheads ep. Hours spent in my bedroom recording all the instruments onto a very basic recording interface resulted in the original four Bitter Kiddos tracks. Through the years I’ve gone through several bass players and drummers, failing to find a cohesive lineup. Finally in 2018 Bitter Kiddos found chemistry with Noah Clark on bass and Nathan Magers on drums. In late August 2018, we released our self-titled EP and are currently working on an upcoming album.

Please tell us about your art.
I wanted to combine sounds that make you move and words that make you sad into a weird cocktail of it’s ‘OK buddy’ Because I wish that there was somebody to tell me it was OK for a little while. The major takeaway should be that everybody feels sad and you can to turn it into things bigger than yourself.

Do you have any advice for other artists? Any lessons you wished you learned earlier?
Being in a band is a constant learning experience for us. Every step forward reveals a new challenge that we really don’t know how to face. What’s most important is that you have a strong lineup that sticks together. Everyone in the band needs to be on the same page. Communicate with each other. Have the same goals. Think as a band rather than individually. The more unified the band, the easier it will be to tackle issues

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
Our music can be found on any major streaming platform. The best way to experience our music is live and in person. Nothing is more fulfilling for us than playing live. We love being able to give so much energy and have it reciprocated. More people need to go out and support live music or any artist for that matter.
