Stockholm based pop quartet Kate Boy have been slathered with critical acclaim for their debut release of earlier this year “Northern Lights”.  Which is not in anyway unfounded as their eclectic mix of Swedish / Australian band members are to be seen as formidable pop making bloodlines in any case.

Expect the blogosphere’s new darlings to slay a few more with their pop punchy follow-up “The Way We Are” as it’s a potent glue of eclectic power, thunderously sprawling it’s sonic synth driven rhythms into a rousing mix of disparately percussion weighted electronics and brought together by the bands kiwi component Kate Akhurst’s impressively raspy vocal flourishes.

Tantalisingly innovative pop at it’s finest, Kate Boy shoot from the hip their creative electronics and slay another blogger in me.

Kate Boy are currently touring through Europe and will touch down in the UK June 19th  at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen – all details of which can be found here
