The thing about a single or EP from a new band is that, after hearing it, you should be left wanting to hear more and that is precisely what Manchester band The Cupids have achieved on their single ‘Kickin’ in’ and the two other tracks thereon.
The band; vocals & guitar, Sid Cooper and Jake Fletcher, drums, James Cardus and bass, Ryan Cormac have released 3 solid, sharp and after a couple of listens very catchy songs.
Cupids are a new band having only formed in September 2015. A slot on last Autumn’s Blossoms tour honed the band and got them some attention. They have an ever-growing fan base and even Donovan recently offered them one of his unrecorded songs.
‘Kicking’ In’ is a catchy song with a Squeeze / Artic Monkeys like vibe. Second track, ‘Adult Terrors’ is the class of the three songs, a widescreen toe tapper with sharp guitar riffs. Final song of the set is ‘Confession Box’ which takes the pace down and shows the band’s adaptability to different styles.
Following a string of dates around an appearance at The Great Escape, tTe band will be playing some festivals later in the year including Isle of Wight (June), Kendall Calling (July) and Neighbourhood Manchester (October). Let’s hope there is an album to follow soon
New Single ‘Kickin’ In' has a digital release on 3rd June 2016
