Hampshire three piece Kilkovec produce an intoxicating blend of alternative punk rock that may call to mind such esteemed bands as Brand New, Letlive, and the Marmozets. Dispatching a sound that is highly energetic, cathartic, and captivatingly raw, the southern alternative crew are quickly gaining traction. Formed in 2012, the band dropped their debut EP Name Your Place to widespread underground support. However, it wasn’t until the release of last year’s Sick Of This EP, which garnered much praise from all quarters but with particular acclaim from Bring the Noise, Punktastic, Hit the Floor, as well as a glowing review from Edith Bowman, that the threesome really cemented a place for themselves within the UK scene. A hefty live schedule and sharing stages and playing alongside the likes of Yearbook, Seething Akira, Flood of Red, Bad Sign, Press to Meco, Black Foxxes, and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus has only helped to reinforce the band’s growing stature and trajectory.
Kilkovec are poised to rise even further with the release of their eagerly awaited new EP Plunge. The infectious groove of Change hoists the record into action with its stomping refrain that will no doubt grace radio airwaves, as it’s destined to be a single. The hammering beatings and colossal hook of their previous single Just Get Better will snare the biggest of fish, while the angsty grit and diversity of Somerset Cottageillustrates the band’s uncanny ability to shift gears and to convex and contort your senses. As the record signs off, Here’s To You will undoubtably leave its mark with its blistering chorus and astute arrangement.
The EP lands in January and the band will be widely touring to support the record; stay glued to their social sites for announcements.
