The Kiffs are four teenage girls from Hastings. Bonnie, Honor, Tallulah and Lola met at school and at just 13 years old they won a competition to support Rat Boy at The Zooquarium Festival on Hastings Pier and have been making an impact on the Hastings music scene ever since. Steve Lamacq has played The Kiffs on his 6Music Recommends Show, and the girls have also performed a session for BBC Kent. They are regulars at The Printworks and The Brass Monkey and supported Kid Kapichi at their EP launch. The girls recently launched their own EP ‘Moth Eaten Minds’ at The Carlisle in a night that is fast becoming legendary amongst the Hastings music scene.



Influenced by bands such as Deap Vally, The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Radiohead and Wolf Alice, they write their own material. Still all under 16, lyrically they are refreshingly true to their teenage roots. Musically they are extremely mature and hugely talented.



Moth Eaten Minds, The Kiffs first EP collects four of their early compositions. With humour and astute observation, the songs hook you with fantastic riffs, driving beats and a haunting, powerful voice.



The girls are excited to release this first EP, but are really focused on new material and gigging whenever and wherever possible.



The Kiffs are supported by The Eggtooth project in Hastings. Bands such as Kid Kapichi and the Nova Twins are helping their development and offering encouragement where they can.



Soul and RnB singer Gizelle Smith summed up the thoughts and love for The Kiffs from other musicians in a recent Facebook Post “If I was as carefree about music as these girls, I'd be 20 albums in by now! Hugely talented, gritty and funny. Love them! The Kiffs. Support young talent
