Review: Kid Karate belt them out

IRISH two piece Kid Karate really belt them out.
The group’s new EP, Lights Out, sees vocalist/guitarist Kevin Breen and drummer Steven Gannon shine with their sheer energy and verve.
The sound harks back to the last great golden age of guitar bands – with the pair sounding akin to a younger Young Knives in places, with hints of early Bloc Party and The Rakes et al, all played with a DIY White Stripes attitude.
There’s a definite need to polish up what’s going on here, but this teaser has enough of a kick to it for me to want to hear much more from Kid Karate.
