New Music from K-X-P

New Music from K-X-P We are rather partial to a bit of K-X-P at Electronic Beats. Throbbing riffs and motorik beats are squeezed out of a guitar, a bass, drums and not a lot else, and yet they make a sound that is exactly like something you can lose your shit to in a club. Championed by Glasgow’s Optimo, and with at least one member of the band being involved in some sugary pop productions, their latest 12″ the ‘Easy’ EP comes out on Melodic in November. Ahead of the release you can stream the title track below. Panpipes, chugging guitars and primal howls come together to sound like Hawkwind doing MDMA with Turbonegro. We love it.

Catch K-X-P on tour

K-X-P the Finnish three piece groove machine who we reported on last year are about to embark on a whirlwind tour of Europe. Taking in dates in the UK and Ireland, the band have been busy finishing off the mixes on their debut album – the release we reported on last year, has been pushed back and the band’s proper self titled debut will now be released in March.
