Making Waves: Kid Kapichi

Making Waves: Kid Kapichi

This week's hottest brand new act...

KEY TRACK: Glitterati
LABEL: Kid Kapichi
MANAGEMENT: IE Music
TWITTER: @KidKapichi

WHO: A new Hastings quartet who take pride in ensuring the spirit of their hometwon oozes from their scuffed up modern pop-rock.

WHAT: Fans of Slaves and Idles will find bounty here. Drummer George Macdonald kicks up a cacophony as singers Jack Wilson and Ben Beetham tell escapist tales inspired by the ups and downs of life by the seaside.

WHERE: Hastings, Kent. They’ve been regulars at local venue The Tubman for years, now they’re taking on the world.

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?

Recent singles 2019 and Glitterati are two of five tracks on the band’s Sugar Tax EP, which they will self-release on July 19. They’ve already won support from BBC Radio 1 and Kerrang! Radio.

WHAT’S THE EP LIKE?

Unsuitable for those with a fragile disposition! Once you get past the sonic barrage, look out for lyrics inspired by the “unique people of Hastings”.

ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?

Yes, now you mention it. Frank Carter is a fan, and he’s a man who knows a thing or two about upstart rock bands.
