Young Nottingham 3 piece Kagoule have built up quite a following for themselves over the past year with support coming from the likes of Tigercub and Theo Verney whom they’ve played with several times.
‘Glue’ has been a live favourite for quite a while now. It’s a track that totally sums up the Kagoule sound: jagged but melodic in terms of vocal melodies yet reasonably heavy throughout. There are rad bass riffs mixed with Dinosaur Jr. inspired guitar lines that create a beautiful bond. The lead vocals come from guitarist Cai Burns on this one, with some lovely harmonies to compliment them courtesy of bassist Lucy Hatter.
The track comes from the band’s debut album Urth which is set for release in August on Earache Records. With Kagoule’s track record of releasing only killer punk rock songs such as ‘Glue’, I am only filled with confidence that their debut LP is going to be one of the best rock albums of this year.
