One Born Every Minute by Roses Kings Castles by 360degreemusic
DIGITAL RELEASE DATE: 2/5/10
CAT NO: 360dgmD(CDS)0013
a. ONE BORN EVERY MINUTE
b. SIT DOWN (CASSETTE DEMO VERSION)
Originally conceived as a creative outlet whilst Babyshambles were on holiday, Roses Kings Castles have grown these past two years into a name that is synonymous with smart, witty, acerbic pop. Definitely not indie, yet proudly, defiantly and genuinely independent.
Eschewing the traditional album/tour/single route, RKC have established an identity that is often quirky yet never annoying, and in the process made some stunning music. Comparisons with Belle & Sebastian’s pastoral warmth and the acidic outsider pop of Syd Barrett, have now dissolved as RKC have moved into a sound that is comfortably their own.
The eponymus debut album has sold more than 3,000 copies since its release in September 2008 and an ever growing army of new fans across the globe have enabled a lengthy spell in the studio, which has produced a wealth of new material. The album Suburban Time Bombs was recorded in the second half of last year, and the first single from the album, One Born Every Minute will be issued on 2nd May, followed by the album later in the year.
RKC are currently deep into rehearsals with new band members to be revealed shortly, and to coincide with the release of the album, they will be playing selected live dates in the UK and across Europe.
