It’s been quite a wait, two years in fact, since first hearing Dublin noise makers Kid Karate, supporting The Rags in Whelan’s where they almost blew the roof off. From the first visceral note on that night it was bloody obvious these guys were something special.
Numerous electrifying gigs, an excellent EP later and their debut album Night Terrors is finally ready to go. Taken from said album is new single ‘Two Times’, which sums up why they’re such a formidable force. It’s a scuzzy rock n roll jam filled with furious riffage and thunderous drums, not to mention throat zapping vocals. If that doesn’t leave you eagerly anticipating their debut album, nothing will.
It must be said too, they are one of the most impressive live performers in the country, so when they hit the road to promote the new record don’t miss out.
