Pop Culture Pipe Bomb Presents: Fresh Music Friday’s Featured Band Joe Symes and the Loving Kinduser 5 months ago
We have a treat real treat for your ears with this week’s FMF feature, and I am of course talking about, Joe Symes and the Loving Kind!
Joe Symes and the Loving Kind are British three-piece rock band based in Liverpool. The band released their first self-titled debut album in 2013. They then released their double A-side single ‘Things Get Better/I’m Gonna Find Out Some Someday‘. What a brilliant single it is, and I am not the only one that thinks that, with the single getting air time on BBC Introducing and is played at Anfield (Liverpool F.C) on match days. The Boys released a new album ‘Acoustic Variations‘ Ep on the 20th of January 2017, which I will review in the coming days.
Joe Symes and the Loving Kind were asked to play Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds Aftershow Party for a second time at the 02 Academy Liverpool. The band has been playing the UK festival circuit and performed alongside bands such as The Zutons, Space and The Farm just to name a few. The boys were also part of the Hillsborough Truth and Justice Delivered Concert at the Royal Court, London.
The boys are currently hard at work on their long-awaited second album which they are working on at Peter Gabriel’s Solid State Logic Studios in Oxfordshire, which I am told it would be due to drop in late 2017. The first few seconds of listening to ‘Things Get Better’ I was instantly hooked. Their sound reminds me of the classic Australian pub rock I grew up listening too. It’s bold with a massive dose of feel-good and is endlessly playable. The boys are exceptional, and joe’s vocals are perfect. Joe Symes and the Loving Kind’s sound is flawless, and they make it sound so effortless. There is no doubt the guys are exceptionally talented, I love theses guys, and I am looking forward to the release of their second studio album, I have a feeling it’s going to blow us away. The guys were kind enough to take time out of their busy schedule to do our FMF Q&A which you can check out below
