Day 418 - Kingston - Round We Go

DAY 418
Kingston - "Round We Go"
From "Single Realease - No album at this time"

I just heard this band, Kingston, for the first time this morning and this song reminds me of how I felt about The Kooks the first time I heard them. According to their MySpace profile they have not released and album yet and are unsigned. I can't imagine they'd stay unsigned for long! Their music is really fun and energetic! I really enjoy their arrangements.

You can listen to this song and see the video on this YouTube clip.

I know nothing but what I have read about them but here is a blurb from their current MySpace profile:

The Thrilling power-pop outfit Kingston is comprised of Dan Gibson (vocals), Scott Cleary (guitar), Shohan Hustwick (bass), and Ben Barter (drums). Forming in 2006 the Auckland based band are engaging audiences with their electrifying live show and continue to do so in their rather non-stop fashion. Having just released their debut single 'Good Good Feeling' Kingston has reacted well with NZ media. Already placing in the top 40 NZ singles chart and their distinctive video proving to be a huge success on NZ music TV. Kingston were also chosen to be 2008's New Zealand Schools Tour band. This covered the whole country on a 3 month nationwide tour spanning July, August & September. With this in hand Kingston have developed a solid loyal fan base across New Zealand and are primed for good things to come. Renowned for their infectious power pop anthems Kingston are already sparking international attention and are planning to take on the US music scene in early 2009.
