Hastings post-punk four-piece Kid Kapichi prove the accuracy behind BBC Radio 1’s description of them as “a force” with their highly anticipated debut record This Time Next Year, which combines conflicting emotions and catchy soundscapes without skipping over the nuances of their individual personalities.


A vicious exploration of growing up poor, Kid Kapichi’s debut is full of grit, determination and blood-curdling fury.


Kid Kapichi's debut album is a success. It's not something we never heard but it's a recipe that works : a fuzzy voice, a heavy bassline, catchy choruses, loud drums and effective melodies. A very good rock record.


It's a prosperous time for post-punk and Kid Kapichi are just the latest band on the wagon, thankfully it's a great sound, with purpose.

This is one of the more similar attempts to IDLES i've heard since Joy took off in 2018, albeit with some crushing riffs which sound amazing particularly on the opener.

It's a good album, just the 4th best Post-Punk album i've heard this year and we're only 5 weeks in.


This debut album from the band tipped as "One to Watch in 2021" by NME shows that it has an identity and personality very crystal clear, and that's what makes this debut album pretty good! Repeated listen is required to appreciate their finer detail from a different angle.
Not to be overlooked.
