KING KARTEL have announced the release of their brand new single ‘Be Mine’, out 7th February. In celebration of the track, the band will also play a single launch party at Manchester’s Club Academy on 6th March.
‘Be Mine’ sees King Kartel swap their riotous indie rock for the 50s & 60s inspired “doo wop indie”, while maintaining the addictive hooks and anthemic choruses which the band have become notorious for.
Formed of three Irish lads, one Mancunion and a lad from St Helens, King Kartel have already amassed an impressive back catalogue of top-class records simply made for turbulent singalongs. Named as Radio X’s ‘Refreshing Sound’ winners in 2015, and on This Feeling’s ‘Big in 2019’ list; the band have sold out shows across Manchester and Northern Ireland, as well as securing slots at the likes of Isle of Wight, Truck and Y Not Festivals.
With firm support already in place from Radio X, BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart and This Feeling to name but a few, and tracks featured across TV shows including Hollyoaks, Come Dine With Me and World’s Strongest Man, the industry are well and truly locked into King Kartel; with previous tracks seeing them compared to Kasabian, Catfish & The Bottlemen and The Fratellis.
