If you’re a fan of pure British indie who’ve captured the essence of quintessential British music and put a contemporary twist on it, then Kartica are for you. They’ve recently been making waves in the music industry, winning critical acclaim for their latest single ‘Don’t You Think So?’ and also, proving to be a stunning band to catch live.
NME has stated that they’re “Solid Sheffield Indie Rock” whilst The Silver Tongue over in the US have, “Kartica proves they have the proficiency and drive to be magnificent in their own right”. Whilst riding on such fantastic reviews, the band have decided to give away one of the bonus B-sides that come along side ‘Don’t You Think So?’, which makes it’s a tantalising package. Kartica are giving away ‘Wider Eyes’ for you all to enjoy.

What the Press are Saying:
NME – “Solid Sheffield Indie Rock”
Beneath the Crowd – “If you’re like me and feel a little nostalgic of the 90s pop acts, give Kartica a shot. And if you’ve never liked the 90s but want a band that sounds different from all those things on the radio, give KARTICA a shot too. I promise you won’t regret it”
AMP – “Why are this band not a household name? Kartica create uplifting guitar music that I could listen to over and over again and never tire of.”
Musika - “For a debut, the band sound supremely confident. Big crashing cymbals, a rousing chorus and some stirring riffs lull you in before pulling your arms skywards in ecstatic salute. The drums; a touch of Matt Helders (of fellow Sheffield cohort Arctic Monkeys) shoves this out the house, blinking into glorious sunshine.”
Totally Vivid – “a plaintiff to carry the baton of British lad-rock on to the next generation. With recent efforts from the likes of The Enemy proving to be particularly uninspiring, Kartica offer a well-polished alternative.”
IndScene – “”Indie/rock band Kartica have blessed our ears with a little tune they called ‘Dont You Think So’.”
