As we kick off another week and get close to the end of a highly controversial year for many, we are premiering a song that embodies all those topics. With a backdrop of radical election results, political lies and media spin doctoring, NEKO’s upcoming single, Patterns of Distraction, tears through the lies and screams the truth in a blaze of grungy guitar riffs, dirty bass lines and thundering drum beats.
As the band comments,
Our latest E.P was recorded with James Simpson from Get Inuit, and John Davis (who has previously worked with Royal Blood and Led Zeppelin). The first single from the E.P, is called “Patterns of Distraction” due for release on the 15/12/16 – is a post-Brexit rage against media and political lies and has already received praise from BBC Introducing in the South which also gave the track its first radio air play on November 21st.
NEKO are a rock music trio from the UK who bring together huge guitar riffs, thunderous drums, dirty bass lines, and earth-shattering vocals.
Influenced by Queens of the Stone Age, Dinosaur Pile Up and Muse, Tom Brennan (vocals and guitar), Luke Knight (bass) and David Cassell (drums) formed “NEKO” while attending high school (incidentally the same high school which produced their friend Mike Kerr of Royal Blood).
The three have overcome personal tragedy and band break-ups, to emerge strong as one of the South Coast’s best and most exciting new rock bands.
