Stoop Kid is the jangly indie-rock project of Jens Rubens. The band was named after a character of the 90’s Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold. In the show Stoop Kid’s an anxious teenager who’s afraid to leave the stoop in front of his house. Childhood memories of getting lost in these cartoons combined with Jens’ own struggles with social anxiety made the name seem like a perfect fit for the project.
Musical influences range from The Clean’s jangle pop and Pavement’s slacker rock to more contemporary indie, emo and punk acts like Day Wave, The Hotelier and Toys That Kill.
