(Toronto, ON – May 31, 2024) – Indigenous voices are brought to center stage yet again as Canadian duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids tap Travis Thompson to team up for their new single “KALEIDOSCOPE” produced by Eestbound (Travis Scott’s Antidote, Little Simz, Young Thug), and paired with a futuristic, vibey visualizer. 

“KALEIDOSCOPE” is an anthem of the hero’s journey towards success in the music industry. As the track kicks off with Travis’s buoyant chorus singing of the sacrifices to make dreams a reality and encouragement to do so, he invites listeners on a journey of beating the odds and coming up from nothing while being counted out. On a trip to Vancouver to visit Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Travis and the duo filmed the vibrant coloured, psychedelic visual. The hallucinogenic imagery is bound to take you on a trip as you enter the optical illusion of their journey and enter deeper into the RED FUTURE visual world. 

Yung Trybez, one half of Snotty Nose Rez Kids, describes:

We’ve been seeing each other do the damn thang for years, we’ve always had respect for each other and always wanted to get one together. After linking up on a tour together last year, it was only natural we get in the stu. We set a date for Travis to come to Vancouver and he went back to Seattle with KALEIDOSCOPE. This is one of our favourite songs off this album and we feel it perfectly blends our styles.

Snotty Nose Rez Kids and Travis portray a world where it’s exhilarating to prove people wrong and where focusing on your goals and doing what makes you happy is the only world these Hip-Hop heads live in – a message we can all relate to.

With a busy Fall ahead, Snotty Nose Rez Kids announce their sixth studio album RED FUTURE  set to be released on September 13th, 2024. Tickets to their big multi-artist hometown show in Vancouver on September 21st at the Malkin Bowl will go on sale Friday, June 7th

Snotty Nose Rez Kids, the Indigenous Hip-Hop duo hailing from the Haisla Nation in British Columbia, Canada, tore into the music scene in 2016 with unmistakable talent and an unforgettable name. Showing off their lyrical prowess and natural storytelling ability, Yung Trybez and Young D jumpstarted the band with two back-to-back albums: The Average Savage (2017) and Snotty Nose Rez Kids (2018). Their follow up album, 2019’s Trapline, launched their career with hit “Boujee Natives,” and multiple awards including their first JUNO Award nomination.

The band took their high voltage live show on the road and clocked 100 shows in six different countries. Their pandemic album, Life After, saw greater industry recognition with multiple music magazine cover stories, and strong streaming platform support, playlist cover images, and an Amazon Twitch Channel Takeover. Taking the album on the road, the band toured 80 shows in support of the album across North America. They received their second JUNO Award nomination in 2022 and performed during the live broadcast.

Their 2022 project, I’M GOOD, HBU? elevated their career to new heights, and saw them receive their fourth Polaris Prize Shortlist, a win for top music video of the year at the Prism Prize Awards for their Beatles-inspired, “Damn Right,” and landed them four Western Canadian Music Award nominations, bringing their tally to 14 nominations and 10 wins so far. SNRK have gone on to dominate in Hip-Hop music, most recently achieving their biggest milestone, signing to major label Sony Music Entertainment Canada. SNRK are blazing their own path, weaving together a musical fabric of hard-hitting lyricism, revealing stories about the struggles they and their people have encountered, empowering protest songs for the front lines, and a humor that keeps even the heaviest of topics something you can vibe to.
