EMERGING INDIE TALENT ‘THE K’S’ READY TO RELEASE THEIR PIVITOL ALBUM DEBUT

The electric indie outfit, are set to release their highly anticipated debut album ‘I Wonder If The World Knows’ on April 5th

After selling out multiple headline UK shows and shining on the summer stages of some of the UK’s biggest festivals, it only seemed right for these Earlestown lads to release what is one of the most highly anticipated debut albums of the year. 

I Wonder If The World Knows tells the story of living for the weekend; and the promises you make to never drink again when the Sunday morning “Beer Fear” comes knocking. Jamie Boyle’s relatable lyrics are just one of the reasons why The K’s have taken the indie music scene by storm.

After a beautiful violin symphony on their opening track ‘Icarus’, The K’s are straight back to what they do best… energy-filled indie anthems. Nathan Peers’ rapid drums kick in and carry through perfectly into the next track, ‘Heart On My Sleeve’. 

With rave reviews, the first release in the run up to the album ‘Heart On My Sleeve’ is the K’s at their very best. Ryan Breslin’s infectious guitar riffs are the backbone of this track and give the platform for Jamie Boyle to display his stellar vocals in full force. 

Their live energy is something that radiates right through the following tracks ‘Chancer’ and ‘Throw It All Away’. With over 1 million streams on Spotify alone – ‘Chancer‘ is a boozy, love at first sight inspired anthem that’s been proven way to get a crowd moving. ‘Throw It All Away’ follows and does not disappoint. This one will be beautiful live. 

The album slows down for the first time in the track ‘Lights Go Down’. With Breslin’s piano making an appearance, this is sure to be a lights-on anthem when taken on the road. Boyle’s vocals on this track are as good as any; extremely captivating. 

‘Hometown’ and ‘Landmines’ are next, and deliver a two-punch, indie-rock knockout. With both tracks released as singles prior, I can’t say it’s a surprise these songs have made the track list. Perfect tightness throughout; and that intro to ‘Landmines’ is enough to make anyone giddy.

Up next is a return of tour favourite ‘Hoping Maybe’. Re-recorded by the team at LAB Records, they have worked wonders to add yet another level to this anthemic ballad. Beautiful… there’s no other word for it. 

From idyllic to impassioned, ‘No Place Like Home’ and ‘Black & Blue’ have received immense critical acclaim in the run up the album’s release. Driven by pure rock and roll, these tracks are written so well and executed flawlessly. 

Penultimate track ‘Circles’ rounds up the fast-paced and energy-filled efforts on this record. There is no better way to sum up what The K’s are all about than this track; catchy distorted guitar riffs, huge vocals, and breath-taking drum fills.

After all that action, ‘Valley One’ finishes off The K’s debut album in spectacular fashion. The subtle violin towards the end of this modern ballad compliments that of the opening track; and really makes you feel like you’ve been taken on a journey.

I Wonder If The World Knows is a written journey throughout the last couple of years of our lives” says lead singer Jamie Boyle. “We’ve put our heart and soul into making the perfect record and we can’t wait for you to hear it.”

The Earlestown indie champs are set to take on some of the most sizable venues of their career to date. The tour will include headline shows at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse and London’s Electric Ballroom. 

In anticipation of the tour, the band says: “After the release of our debut album, we will be heading out on our biggest tour to date! We couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve created and we can’t wait to play it live for you all.”
