Pink tweets about boy band from NSW

An up-an-coming teen boy band from the NSW Central Coast has caught the eye of musical superstar Pink.

The five-piece, pop-punk group, Kid Zr0, have been united by their love of Pink's music since they formed in January.

The teenagers decided it was only fitting they perform a Pink song but never dreamed it would get a response from the singer herself.

"We decided to cover her song Just Like Fire and she picked up on that and shared it around which was just amazing," lead singer 15-year-old Brandon Alexander told AAP.

"She put it up on her Instagram and her Twitter."

The video has now amassed nearly 60,000 views.

It's not bad for a group of teens who met at Gosford's music school, known as Rock God High.

Things have been picking up speed for the group made up of Alexander on vocals, guitarist Jamie Bailey (18) drummer Baily Graeber (16) bass player Lee Hackney (17) and rhythm guitarist Jacob Richardson (17).

They recently signed a deal to be managed by industry heavyweights Michael Browning (INXS, AC/DC) and Brent Jeffery (Bright Yellow, Little Earthquake).

Alexander, who is the last remaining member still at school, said the group formed a bond pretty quickly.

"We're a lot like brothers, we all really think the same," he said.

"We all skate and we like hanging out with each other, so that makes us a lot closer musically."

The teenagers' story bears some similarities to that of Sydney boys Five Seconds of Summer.

The international superstars also met when they were teenagers and champion a very similar style of pop-punk music.

"A lot of people do compare us and we say `well we're like Five Seconds of Summer, but we've definitely got a more rock edge to us, a punky vibe'," Alexander said.

Like the 5SOS boys, the hype about Kid Zr0 is growing on social media and they've caught the attention of people from around the world.

"We've developed a fan base from people in Asia and Europe and it's crazy," he said.

"We've got fans everywhere at the moment."

Kid Zr0 is about to play its first headline show in Sydney next month and Alexander hopes it will help tick one more thing off the band's list of goals.

"I'd quite like a record deal," he said.
