Come At Me Now
30 March 2015
“King Kartel reanimate the glory days of The Jam & The Libertines. Many bands have tried that trick before, but there’s something highly appealing about the Manchester band’s efforts”
RADAR - NME MAGAZINE
Released on CD and as a digital download 'Come At Me Now' is the highly anticipated new single from King Kartel, a band renowned for their infectious indie-infused rock.
Formed in September 2012, King Kartel wasted no time in taking the UK and Ireland by storm through a successful tour to support the release of their debut single ‘Stone Cold Killer’, which has now racked up an impressive 29,000 views on Youtube.
The quartet, mainly hailing from Northern Ireland quickly caught the attention of Riggsy from the BBC’s ‘Across the Line’ who gave ‘Stone Cold Killer’ plenty of airplay, heralding them as hometown heroes, a claim justified by a string of sold out shows in and around Newry.
Riggsy describes the band as having an “eye for a hook!” and Philly Taggart from BBC Radio 1 says King Kartel produce “cheeky guitar pop in the vein of The Fratellis and The Courteeners”.
'Come At Me Now' prove the King Kartel aren't afraid to embrace their pop sensibilities which combine with their indie rock sound to create a storming single which is set to raise the profile of the Manchester based band even higher.
Both tracks were written by Hugh McCreesh (King Kartel)
