Nottingham trio Kagoule obviously had something fanciful and whimsical in mind when they named their new single Bad Saliva. Having recently signed to Alcopop! Records, they deluge us with frisky slapping, angular jaunting strings on the feisty spirited tune. Commenting on the new track, the band says: “Bad Saliva is a track about turning off the path you find yourself on; the temptation to make a change and the anxieties of then making it.” It’s been a long couple of years since we last featured the band, just ahead of their debut album Urth dropped. We’re more than glad they’re back with new music, much less a post-punk inflected garage rock anthem like Bad Saliva! Kagoule will be releasing a new album named Strange Entertainment later this year.

British alt rockers Kagoule has reeled me in with their gritty, grungy rock music. As their debut album Urth looms ahead, the band has revealed a sludgy new tune from the record named Centralwing. The song’s guitar growling reminds me of Manchester Orchestra with a smidgeon of 90′s evoking Wolf Alice. Kagoule also revealed a music video for previously shared lushly ragged Made Of Concrete, a fine reason to revisit the track below or check it out for the first time if you missed my feature last week. Urth will be out digitally this Friday and in stores September 11th via Earache. Apparently, the video is a tribute to our favorite mind boggling director (and musician), David Lynch.

Considered by some at home as one of the best new bands in Britain, Kagoule seems to live up that title on the songs I’ve heard from the Nottingham trio so far. Though one of their less “fierce” rockers, Made Of Concrete is a personal favorite. It’s a slow burning rock song that shimmers with lustrous guitars.  90′s evoking Wolf Alice grit and swaying Palace blues smoothly march together in harmony, topped off with plenty of dreamy reverb. Serene yet raw and visceral at the same time, Made Of Concrete is but one of many stunning tunes from Kagoule’s debut album, Urth, set for a US release on August 21st via Earache Records.
