LISTEN: Kios - 'Asleep'

When I check through the submissions for the blog, it continually blows my mind to see how far and wide the blog has spread. The idea that anybody at all is reading my posts is overwhelming enough, let alone anybody living thousands of miles away from me. Kios are an indie rock band based in Nashville, who found the blog and reached out recently to tell me about their brand new single Asleep.

I loved the track on first listen and knew I had to share - it follows the release of recent singles Be Loved and Right Now, delivering the same guitar driven upbeat vibes, reminiscent of the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and Phoenix. It's a really fun track and is sounding glorious on the 2019 Spotify playlist (which you should definitely check out & follow here - so far there's almost 10 hours of my favourite tracks of the year.)

Kios is Cole Suddarth (vocals, guitar), Aaron Krak (drums) and Mitch Wollenberg (bass) - Cole and Aaron met through a previous band forming at Belmont University, while Aaron and Mitch grew up together in Newark, Ohio. The trio moved in together in 2017, sparking the idea of creating music. Cole spent the summer in his hometown, writing songs and recording demos, which were sent back and forth between the trio, and Kios was born. The band say that "we're genuinely excited to be releasing more music and can't wait for you to hear it."
