Kid Kapichi have released a deceptively gentle, yet hard-hitting new track, “Party At No 10”, through Spinefarm Records. The track arrives accompanied by its official video, which you can check out below.
The band say of the new track: “Party at No 10” is a song about the lack of morality within our government and how whilst we sat indoors and put our lives on hold to keep loved ones and strangers alike safe, they chose to throw parties in total disregard to their own orders. A stark reminder that it’ll always be one rule for them, and another for you.”
Hailing from Hastings on England’s south coast, Kid Kapichi consist of Ben Beetham, Jack Wilson, George Macdonald and Eddie Lewis. Fast becoming renowned for giving voice to the working class, the band’s reputation has already been enhanced by their snarling previous single, “New England” featuring Bob Vylan.
Across “New England”, Kid Kapichi tackled political apathy, the class divide and Brexit before a smoldering verse from Bob Vylan that takes aim at racism and xenophobia.
“‘New England’ is a song that targets the blindly patriotic, grabs them by the shoulders, shakes them and shouts ‘wake up’,” Kid Kapichi’s vocalist/guitarist Jack Wilson told the NME.
“We’re living in scary times where the top of society have found a way to turn the working class against themselves. We become more confident in our xenophobia as it’s only reinforced by our government on a daily basis.”
Prior to the release of “New England”, the band also released the album, This Time Next Year. That record also received highly positive press. NME’s review said, “Like most of the furious political-punk that’s come out over the past decade, ‘This Time Next Year’ is made for playing live. “Working Man’s Town” is driven by filthy Queens Of The Stone Age-style riffs, jolly opener “First World Goblins” feels like Royal Blood-meets-Klaxons and the destructive ‘Violence’ is an anthem of sheer frustration that’s going to cause absolute carnage when it’s finally unleashed in the live arena.”
