Whilst some may say you should never judge a book by its cover, between the name Young Kato and the haircut of the lead singer, I almost cut this band off before I gave them a fair listen. Quite glad I didn’t as “Drink, Dance, Play” is a cracking song, and the single is out from 3 June on LAB Records.
The six-piece band, who met in Cheltenham, play a band of pure indie rock, much in the same vein of The Smiths, The Crookes, and The Housemartins. Although they’re not doing owt new, it’s a sound we’re happy to revisit quite often. Following their single, an EP is scheduled for release on 23 June.
2nd June Cribbs Causeway Queens Diamond Jubilee Festival, Bristol
20th July 2 Pigs, Cheltenham
21st July Gloucester Park Festival, Gloucester
26th July The Rainbow, Birmingham
27th July Thekla, Bristol
