KCTMO is the debut single from new London band Pozi, written during the aftermath of the Grenfell tower fire.
The track itself is a brutally honest, open-hearted encounter of what it was like to be near Grenfell at the time, and the anger Vocalist & Drummer Toby Burroughs felt; with lyrics like ‘Deadly damages are due’ Pozi aren’t holding back. Good.
Sonically, the track comes in somewhere halfway between the Maccabees and The Streets. ‘KCTMO’ has an irresistible bassline and a pounding drumbeat that really grab your attention, and the haunting violin that creeps in throughout keeps you hooked.
Very promising stuff for a debut single.
Pozi have 2 upcoming London shows:
31 Oct – London, The Curtain Hotel (PRAH Halloween Party)
27 Nov – London, Moth Club
