kings and castles
Genre: Indie rock
Formed in early 2017, indie rock quartet Kings and Castles recorded their first song “Love is the word”, which was instantly picked up by the BBC Introducing team (led by Huw Stephens) and immediately started getting airplay.
The band made up of Ross (Vocals/ Guitar), Aiden (Guitar/ Vocals), Louie (Bass) and Matt (Drums/ Vocals) have continued to push on from their early success, determined to put their stamp on the world having been picked up by London based record label Tonotopic Records.
A busy 2018 saw them pack out numerous venues creating a party like atmosphere in locations across the UK. The band performed at various festivals throughout the year, such as Byline, Icebreaker, Charmed Life and Wickham Festival. Having played with artists such as Badly Drawn Boy, Deco and Wolf Culture over recent months, the band have released their latest single “Daydream”, which has already received raving reviews.
“Daydream has that timeless quality that defies eras”. - Ben Magee
“”The head-banging percussions and electrifying guitars keep coming like shots of vodka. Daydream has a strut to its stride and is sure to be a concert staple!” - Lakisha Skinner
Their singles have been supported by the likes of BBC Introducing, BBC Radio Solent, Voice FM and more, with an ever-growing worldwide list of stations.
2019 will see the band releasing more singles at the start of the year before a UK Tour and debut album.
