Kid Kapichi’s ‘2019’ Is A Howl Of Distrust

The Kent punks want to stand up for their peers...

Kid Kapichi know what's right and what's wrong.

And a lot of what is going on in this country right now is – by any standards – wrong.

The Hastings band can't avoid talking about this in their music, brisk, raucous, visceral indie-punk hymns that don't hold back from their opinions.

New single '2019' is a howl of distrust, a blast against authority that uses crunching chords and throat-melting vocals to make its point.

The single comes as the band prepare for a nationwide tour alongside Calva Louise, and it's set to become an anthem for fans who feel left behind in a nation that has lost its way.

Ben Beetham explains…

“It’s an angry song that comments on the state of affairs that young people of varying backgrounds are left in in Britain at the moment. Especially in small towns, there’s been an increasing lack of opportunity for young people to get jobs and be able to afford a decent standard of living, and the people that can manage it are having to work harder than ever to achieve it.”

Tune in now.
