Brighton risers Opus Kink share brand new effort ‘Children’, arriving today (April 20th), marking the second official single taken from their eagerly anticipated ‘My Eyes, Brother!’ EP, set for release May 19th via Nice Swan Records (Sports Team, Pip Blom, FUR, English Teacher).
Partnering with the cult indie label for their upcoming extended release, the enigmatic sextet’s continuous progression shows no signs of slowing down, with the DIY Magazine Class of 2023 readying themselves for their biggest headline shows to date (including London’s iconic Village Underground) in the spring, as well as a glut of festival slots including Truck Festival and Live At Leeds In The Park over the summer months.
The follow-up to 2022 debut EP ‘‘Til The Stream Runs Dry’, ‘Children’ follows raucous lead track ‘Dust’ and subsequent teaser ‘1 : 18’, adding to their irrepressible musical patchwork of chaotic brilliance, garnering plentiful plaudits from key press champions (The Sunday Times, The Independent, NME, DIY, So Young, Dork, Clash, Gigwise, Under The Radar) and radio tastemakers in the process, with two appearances on the BBC 6 Music playlist (Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne) and repeated support on BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders).
Speaking ahead of their upcoming release, frontman Angus Rogers stated: “Please enjoy ‘Children’, our Ibiza summertime anthem, a song about how very hard it is being an artist who makes little funny things then dashes them into the void”.
Opus Kink’s ‘Children’ is out April 20th via Nice Swan Records and will be available on all digital platforms.
