The group entered the musical industry in a very strange way, as the guinea pig band of a Big Brother-style musical experiment organized by PJ Harvey’s producer John Paris at Bath Spa University on February 2008.
After storming British and Irish stages, they are coming to perform at the Newcomers Festival at Babylon. With Chris Turpin on guitar and vocals, Stephanie Ward on vocals and piano, Dom Kozubik on bass and Marc Jones on percussions, KIK signed to One Little Indian Records - which has worked with Bjork and Skunk Anansie - before signing to EMI for the global market. The band makes a sound and steady music in the Americana and Blues Rock genre and they worked with Ryan Hadlock, (also the producer of Foo Fighters, The Gossip and The Strokes), for their self-titled debut album. Using instruments like guitars and banjos, the band is considered one of the most promising upcoming bands.
