Welcome Finnish Indie-Pop act, the oddly named, Koria Kitten Riot

Fronted by songwriter Antti Reikko, this is their third album and their first with a full band. Having sited Elliott Smith, Wilco and early Weezer amongst their influences, they recorded in Berlin with Doug Van Sloan (Bright Eyes, She & Him) handling the mastering.

Rich Men Poor Men Good Men is a record that treats its indie-folk with sweetness and wonder. It leaves a smile on the face and a glint in the eye.

The songwriting is a wonderful blend of melodic pop and thoughtful lyrics. This, together with the band’s excellent musicianship, makes their debut a very special release.

With this, it’s no surprise that this young band is getting attention around the world. This week they are appearing on BBC Radio 6 Music, so tune in to find out more!

‘Songs of Hope and Science’ is set for release on 27th January via VILD Recordings. The album was recorded in Berlin and features guest appearances by Jon Auer, Damien Rice and Regina Spektor.

It’s a gentle and melodic album that is both comforting and encouraging, with the gentle songwriting and thoughtful lyrics giving us hope. It’s a great listen and one we’re looking forward to sharing with our readers.

The latest offering from Helsinki, Finland’s KKR is an excellent debut that goes largely unnoticed, but deserves to be appreciated more widely. While Antti Reikko is probably best known as the lead singer and guitarist of Johnny Superhero, he has released a number of solo albums under his own name, but this is the one that stands out.
