'Kapow!' is 485c's fourth single, following on from 'She'll Lie,' 'Strange Medicine' and 'Better The Man'. Having spent much of 2017 holed up in the studio, and touring, including The Great Escape, a support slot with The Sherlocks and This Feeling at Nambucca, ‘Kapow!’ is another addictive slice of indie-pop bedlam. Beyond their ragged demeanour, there lurks the heart of a profound alt.pop poet.
Following ‘Kapow!,’ the band will release their debut album on March 9, via Fierce Panda. Having played Camden Assembly this week, 485c will be heading back out on the road for more shows, including Nambucca in London on February 3.
Steve Lamacq at 6Music named ‘Strange Medicine’ as one of his Tracks of 2017 and Spotify included ‘Strange Medicine’ in their ‘Best of the Indie List 2017’ playlist. 2018 looks set to be another stellar year for the East London five piece.
