Countless bands have fallen victim to the dreaded sophomore slump. Not Kid Kapichi.
The up-and-coming U.K. indie-rockers’ new second album Here’s What You Could Have Won doesn’t take up where its 2021 predecessor This Time Next Year left off — it raises the stakes with bigger beats, sharper riffs and more pointed, political lyrics from frontman Jack Wilson. If you haven’t heard these guys before, songs like New England, Rob The Supermarket, 5 Days On (2 Days Off) and I.N.V.U. will introduce you to their new grownup sound. Simply put: You can’t lose. Shortly before the album’s release, Wilson Zoomed in from Britain to discuss his band’s name, the great state of rock in the U.K., what they learned from their mentor Frank Carter and much more. Enjoy.
