THE K’S LIVE IN MANCHESTER – WHAT HAPPENED?

Fresh from the success of their debut album chart positioning (a respectable number three), The K’s returned home to play a sell out show at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse.

The foursome can do no wrong with K’s fever buzzing through the air as the crowd warmed up their vocal cords with indie classics awaiting the 9pm start. Appearing from behind a proscenium, the crowd went into a frenzy as the curtain dropped revealing four very excited lads, clearly having the time of their lives.

Having followed the rise of The K’s over the last few years it is clear to see why they have made such an impact in a notoriously competitive indie scene, and rising through the ranks of Manchester bands, many wannabes and chancers, these guys just have the edge.

Lead singer Jamie Boyle’s vocals are deep and soulful, and teamed with lead guitarist Ryan Breslin makes for some very special on stage magic. The lyrics are mature, and way beyond the monotonous drivel that some ten-a-penny bands churn out week in week out in local venues.

The K’s latest album is a diverse mixture with each track carefully crafted, musically these guys are on the right trajectory and it will be very interesting to see which direction they go next. They have even caught the attention of seasoned spoken worder Tony Walsh, who has penned his own tribute to the band and which also appears on the album.

One of the highlights for me at a K’s gig is the interaction with the audience. These guys have relentlessly plugged and grafted to promote their album, putting the dedicated fans at the forefront of everything they do. It is refreshing and a nod to their humble roots.

This band proves that hard work and dedication pays off, and I imagine they have become role models to the many younger audiences members in the crowd yesterday. Top work all round!
