Brighton collective Opus Kink share second EP offering ‘The Unrepentant Solder’, set for release March 21st via cult indie label Nice Swan Records (Sports Team, Pip Blom, FUR, English Teacher).

Arriving hot on the heels of frenetic lead single ‘I Love You, Baby’, the sextet comprised of Angus Rogers, Sam Abbo, Fin Abbo, Jed Morgans, Jazz Pope & Jack Banjo Courtney – blend a blend a dizzying array of influences in their ever-evolving enigmatic style, producing an experimental patchwork of explosive material that’s consistently earned widespread plaudits across the media landscape.

With praise arriving from key indie press champions including the likes of of NME, DIY, So Young, Dork, Clash and Gigwise, not to mention countless BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Lauran Laverne) spins, the six-piece are clearly primed for a busy 2022. Having already ticked off live dates alongside label-mates Malady and Mandrake Handshake, in addition to a sold-out headliner at London’s legendary 100 Club last month, the band are newly confirmed for Brighton’s The Great Escape with multiple other festival dates soon to be announced.

Detailing their newest EP reveal, Opus Kink stated: “‘The Unrepentant Soldier’ is an appraisal of remorseless evil in the key of C minor. Some men just want to watch the world burn, others want to teach the children how to stoke the fire, some just want to get it all over with under a shady tree… our hero wants all of this and what he wants he gets. Salud!”

Opus Kink’s ‘The Unrepentant Soldier’ is out March 21st via Nice Swan Records and will be available on all digital platforms.
