'Mimic', the first single to be released from KILTO TAKE's forthcoming debut album - 'Resolute' - is an unwavering introduction to a band that displays their ability to deliver and blend intimate and intricate musical dynamics on an epic scale.
Spikey, angular yet expansive guitars accent the sublime interplay between the drums and bass, providing the perfect platform to delve into Mimic's murky lyrical theme of the inherent self-destruction of modern life. As lead singer Jonathan explains:"It focuses on the pastimes of a hedonist 'mimicking a life' of empty, throwaway, lust-fuelled pursuits, becoming just another lost soul of 'dissolute culture'.giving it away all to easily."
Taking influences from the best of early-U2, early-Radiohead, The Cure and Echo and the Bunnymen; this dark, anthemic offering typifies the bands approach to making the music that they love. It is not a dismissal of current trends, more an appreciation of the need to stay true to themselves and their heroes, whilst delivering something entirely new.
With this approach the Hertfordshire based band seem destined to follow in the footsteps of the UK's most esteemed indie-rock acts and having already been main support for bands such as Django Django, LOOM, Theme Park, Man Like Me and The Chapman Family to name a few, it's difficult to think of another powerhouse capable of packing this much punch and intensity, so early on in their musical career...

The album was produced by Ru Cook (Everything Everything), with art direction from award winning artist Jonathan Cooke (Fabric, Village Green, Visionquest) and campaign photography from Phil Sharp (Mark Ronson, Jarvis Cocker, Ghostpoet, Carl Barat, Metronomy)
