Kudu Blue - Vicinity

I've been slack. I've had this song drafted for an actual entire month. Forgive me because it's here now and everything can be put right.

I always get really taken aback when I see bands/things, especially ones that sound as huge as Kudu Blue and their track 'Vicinity', are from the UK. I don't know why, I guess, I just associate these kind of massive sounding productions with America, and that's fucked up. This isn't the first time that this has happened and I don't know why I don't think that we can produce stuff like this in the UK because it's quite evident from Kudu Blue that massive sounding cross-genre pop stuff is not a problem in the slightest.

I can't find the names of any of the members of this five-piece (maybe I'm not looking hard enough?) which is all well and good until I wanna be like "yo, this chick's vocals are nuts on 'Vicinity'" and you never know how well someone is going to take being referred to as "this chick"... but it's too late for that now. And the repetitive vocal sample on this track is so good too, everything about this is so good - I'm assuming that's a sample but it could very well be what happens like, who knows these days.

Kudu Blue are based in Brighton which is really helpful because they're also playing The Great Escape next month which is quite simply lovely news.
