Kid Kapichi have announced their debut album This Time Next Year, due for release on 5th February 2021.
“The album title has two meanings,” explains co-vocalist/guitarist Jack Wilson. “You hear that phrase a lot, ‘This time next year’ you’ll be doing this and playing here. Sometimes you find it hard to see what you have achieved and how far you’ve come because you’re always looking ahead to that next thing. It can be a toxic way to view life, and one that is quite often the norm. On the other hand, it’s also relevant to what’s going on right now. Everyone’s lives are on pause. We’re all waiting and hoping for this time next year.”
This Time Next Year was produced in lockdown, a DIY effort with co-vocalist/guitarist Ben Beetham taking on engineering and mixing duties.
“We had discussed producing something ourselves one day, but I don’t think any of us thought it’d necessarily be a whole album, and our debut at that,” Beetham explains. “Obviously we had two choices with the pandemic – wait it out, or find a way to do it ourselves. It was all mastered here in Hastings at 360 mastering.”
Keep your eyes peeled for a brand new single, Self-Saboteur, on 16th October 2020.
