Hi there! and how is everyone? I hope you haven’t missed the blog too much? You probably have not so let’s move on. It is September which means that the evenings are getting darker, the weather is getting duller and the school’s are well and truly back and in full operation. College student’s across the country are sipping lattes glaring anxiously at Mac book pros in coffee establishments, crippled with fear of future examinations, schedules and rapidly increasing expenses for the academic year.
As for myself, I have taken quite a substantial break recently from writing, but alas! I am back so it’s not all doom and gloom. And as well as being back, I have brought a gift with me. A fantastic track from a band that I had randomly stumbled upon.
Do you know when you get to the end of your playlist and then it goes into a radio, where it selects similar genre songs for you to add to your current playlist. Well that’s how I found this particular song.
While listening to my Spotify playlist named “indie classics” (how original of me I know) a song called Sarajevo came onto my shuffle that caught my attention, and it comes from a band called The K’S.
The K’S are an indie rock quartet from Warrington in the North West of England. A small town between Liverpool and Manchester, and come from a long lineage of amazing music hailing from this area of Britain. Bands like The Blossoms, The Courteeners and solo acts such as Miles Kane of most recent generation, all the way up to legendary acts like Oasis, The Stone Roses and The Happy Monday’s have all come from this Mecca of sonic nobility, and The K’S look to be another product of their environment.
You can check out Sarajevo, which as it stands has amassed over 56,000 thousand streams on Spotify within a 3 week period. A highly impressive feat no doubt. You can also follow The K’S on their various social media accounts all of which I have linked below. I hope you enjoy, I for one will be extremely excited to hear a lot more from this band in 2017/18.
