Bio

Label:Kusha Deep
Artist: KU
EP Title: The Pressure

KU are a very funky rock band currently signed to Kusha Deep Records. They come from South East Of England, and is made up of 3 members, Darragh.J.Brady (Vocals,Piano,Guitar) Julian Franks (drums) Joel Franks(guitars) and Mike Caleja Bass

They draw on a mixture of genres from bluesy soul to dub rock underpinned with some classic song-writing, reminiscent of The Small Faces, The Who and the super soul of Motown and Stax.

The last EP titled ‘Heads Up’, went into the top 40 independent charts in Australia, play-listed on US radio stations such as 107 FM in LA, WCH radio in St Louis and M3 Radio in New York, and has also been picking up support in the UK through BBC Yorkshire, BBC Southern Counties, Juice FM Brighton, Pulse Fm, Spider Bait in Manchester, and various other ILRs around the country.

The band have just recorded the follow up The Pressure with Julian Tardo who produced music for the legendary label 4AD and currently owns and runs Church Road Studios in Brighton. The EP has 3 tracks which show of the KU sound perfectly, energetic, passionate, mod driven soul with more hooks that a butchers back room.

The Pressure single track is currently being played on BBC Radio, Clint Boon Show XFM, (UK)Pulse FM (UK + USA),Engage Radio (USA),UIC Radio (USA) Smack Music Network (USA),Blow Up Radio (USA) Sonic One Radio (Canada), Oklahoma Web Cast TV (USA) Green Dragon (UK) and Ison radio in Australia.

The Pressure track is a homage to the 9 to 5 monotony which eventually sends the individual mad. The lyric sums up the seven day week hustle to survive in a world that seems to be losing its foundation. There’s a new video available for The Pressure track which has just been shot on location on London, directed by Julian Franks, featuring a very passionate performance from singer Darragh in a film that captures the emotion perfectly.

We’ve used some iconic features of London and mixed it with some Gilbert And George type visual colorings to create something that has passion and side steps out of the crowd.

The two other tracks ‘Something 4 The Weekend’ deals with the routine weekend escape from the weeks reality, a track which just won the Golden Viking Award for best Rock Song 2007 on SWR Radio based in LA.
The third tune ‘Start Again’ delves into picking the pieces up, come Monday. Who said concept music was over.

If your looking for a band that’s got more going for it than a couple of chords and a distortion pedal then KU might just be the tonic you’d choose.

The Pressure EP will be available through Kusha Deep Records (website), Itunes, and many other digital outlets, plus record stores, with a UK tour being organized for 2007.
