Nottingham’s Kagoule release their debut album Urth this Friday and are streaming the self-made video to their BBC Radio 6 Music playlisted single ‘Made of Concrete’. Devised, shot and edited by the band in one day, the DIY video is an ode to David Lynch that asks a lot more questions than it answers. Watch now on YouTube.
Kagoule will celebrate the release of Urth with a free in-store show at Rough Trade East this Friday. The album is currently Rough Trade’s Album of the Month and has already seen some incredible reviews.
Despite not being out of their teens, Kagoule have created an album of true depth and creativity, with MOJO labelling them “superior grunge-schooled rock” (4/5) and Kerrang! saying “the potential here is terrifying” (4/5).
Kagoule also announce some new tour dates, including upcoming shows with METZ and Sleaford Mods.
