Koria Kitten Riot is an indie pop band from Helsinki, Finland. Their third album, Rich Men Poor Men Good Men, is out on GAEA Records Jan 10th 2014.
If you love cheery instrument stuffed indie-pop with a touch of country and folk then Koria Kitten Riot are the perfect band for you. Lead singer Antti Reikko writes songs full of emotion and detail which he then puts together with ambitious arrangements.
KKR are not just another indie pop band – they’re a band with an honest message and a lot of heart. Their third album, ‘Rich Men Poor Men Good Men’ is a testament to the life experiences of singer-songwriter Antti Reikko, who says he was told to work “f*****g hard, be honest and make ballsy decisions”.
The LP is brimming with songs that are both nostalgic and contemporary – a fusion of American indie rock, folk and singer-songwriter influences reminiscent of Elliott Smith and Bright Eyes. The ethereal soundscapes are created by a band who know how to utilise layered instrumentation and three-part harmonies in their tracks.
It doesn’t matter if you’re listening to the whole album or just a few tunes, this is a record that will always make you smile. It’s a great way to spend some time on a rainy day or even just when you’re feeling blue!
