After setting the British guitar music scene alight with their riff-filled debut EP, hedonistic Hastings quartet Kid Kapichi return with anthem ‘Puppet Strings’, set to drop March 16th, taken from their upcoming EP ‘Lucozade Dreams’. Having received support from the likes of Kerrang TV, MTV Rocks and London Evening Standard with their breakthrough self-titled debut EP, the rising indie rockers are being tipped off by industry experts as ones to watch.
Consisting of Ben Beetham (guitar/vocals), Jack Wilson (guitar/vocals), Eddie Lewis (bass) and George MacDonald (drums), ‘Puppet Strings’ mirrors Kid Kapichi’s colossal riff-infused live shows, driven by monstrous guitars and vocal melodies, which are seamlessly switched between Jack and Ben. The stylish foursome have recently been discovered by the Underground England Soundwave’s platform, putting them alongside the likes of Pale Waves and Black Honey.
With lead single ‘Puppet Strings’ giving a taster of the full EP ‘Lucozade Dreams’, which is set to follow March 30th, their bombastic guitars and well-crafted vocals will have you begging for more. Dripping with rock tunes that punch you in the chest and leave you humming the chorus with the few breaths you have left, the indie rocker’s EP blend heavy, incendiary rock with harmonising vocals, making it obvious as to why the four-piece are the forerunners of the new generation of bands in Hastings.
With a sold-out festival show on Hasting Pier already under their belt, as well as supporting the likes of Slaves, Rat Boy and Fat White Family, Kid Kapichi will be touring the UK with ‘Lucozade Dreams’ alongside winners of Best Rock/Alternative at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards 2016, Bloodlines. Kicking the tour off with 3 sold out shows in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness, it’s not one to miss.
