REVIEW: JOSH WHEATLEY – ‘I KNOW YOU’ EP 18

Having first caught the attention of Radio 2, and in particular, Janice Long, Josh Wheatley has only seen the interest in his talents rise over recent months. Inspired by the likes of David Gray, in his own words, he has a “self-diagnosed addiction to writing” and now, he’s shared just a sample of what he’s been working on with the world via his ‘I Know You’ EP.

There’s a rather psychedelic, disco-dance sound to opening number “Calling” and although the instrumentation often overshadows Wheatley’s voice, it makes for a considerably strong start. With a toe-tapping, hip-swaying melody that will be stuck in your head after just one listen, and a smooth almost angelic vocal, “I Know You” was a great choice for a single release, and is easily a contender for the strongest track on the collection.

“Worry” maintains the uptempo rhythm the EP’s running with and I dare you to try and not tap your fingers along to it if you’re working at a desk, sat at a table or even driving in your car. “Notice” is a tad slower – and I do mean just a tad – and is the most lyrically simplistic of the tracks featured. With that said, it does showcase Wheatley’s vocal well and like its predecessors, it’s sure to have hands clapping and toes tapping.

Closing number “Savior” has a rather Paolo Nutini-eqsue vocal to it (imagine it performed with a distinctive Scottish accent and you’ll know what I mean) and although it’s far from bad, it could be considered as the weakest of the EP’s five tracks, purely because it’s lacking the power and exciting ‘flair’ of the others. Nevertheless, it ends the album on a good, rather solid note.

With a lot of new talent popping up all over the country, Wheatley’s EP helps cement the young singer-songwriter as one of the top, hot picks for 2018. Whether he can maintain his position there however, only time will tell.

Josh Wheatley’s ‘I Know You’ EP is available now.

REVIEW: KID KAPICHI – ‘LUCOZADE DREAMS’ EP 24

Kid Kapichi are currently one of the most talked about up and coming bands in Britain, and, on the back of their previous EP, are so with good reason. However, some bands can and do often struggle when it comes to a second release. There’s more pressure and expectation, and sometimes it’s more than artists can handle well. So, how have KK fared with their sophomore EP, Lucozade Dreams?

The intro piece, at just over 46 seconds long could easily have been left off the EP, but given that it’s brashier and bolder than many opening instrumentals featured on albums and the like in recent months, it doesn’t fare too badly. It is however a good thing that “Cinderella” quickly follows on from it and ultimately sets the tone for the EP overall. With it’s big, catchy verses, and a chorus that’s even bigger, combined with a toe-tapping bass undertone, it’s an exciting little number, sure to impress and win over music fans who give it a listen.

The momentum and energy continues through “Puppet Strings” and although the instrumentation is good, ultimately it’s the impressive lyrics that make the track stand out. Meanwhile, anyone looking for a superb riff and a thumping, invigorating beat need look no further than “Jack Jones” and the slick production on “Machine Men” means the EP ends on a rewarding high for both band and listener.

While the group from Hastings might still be considerably unknown to some, they’ve been talked about for some time now, and the amount of said talk is only likely to grow on the back of Lucozade Dreams – a collection that’s fun, fizzing with energy and highlights just how much Kid Kapichi love what they do, and in time, more music fans might just find themselves loving them too.

Lucozade Dreams is available now.
