Highland-based KOBI are set to release their debut single, ‘All The Way’ on Monday April 22nd.
Produced by Grammy Award winner Steve Orchard (Noel Gallagher, Travis, Paul McCartney) ‘All the Way’ finds KOBI in unashamed Pop territory, drawing on a love of 80’s acts like The Cars, The Blue Nile, Aztec Camera as much as contemporary acts such as Foals and The Arcade Fire.
It’s a single full of hooks and melodies and one that reflects the band’s extraordinarily diverse list of reference points and influences yet is ultimately all about the band's shared love of the classic three minute pop song.
Frontman Gary Thain said "The time is right to for us to unleash this track! We've really embraced our pop sensibilities on this and have been blown away by the crowd reaction when we debuted the song as part of our live set".
In their first year KOBI have picked up a growing support with shows at key Scottish venues such as King Tuts in Glasgow, The Lemon Tree in Aberdeen and Ironworks in Inverness.
2012 also saw the band play festival slots at Rockness (Clash Arena) and Belladrum Festival's main stage (which was broadcasted on BBC alba as part of their coverage of the Festival) as well as Brew at the Bog.
KOBI are playing the following shows:
March 29th Inverness Mad Hatters
March 30th Glasgow Nice ‘n’ Sleazy
April 7th London The New Cross Inn
