Irish boy in London Kipper Gillespie’s five track debut EP K (Be Funny) is a sparkling, lo-fi strut of an EP, released on Big Richard Records.
Recent single How’s She Cuttin’ sounds like a lazy, blissed out Mac Demarco, tuneful bouncy guitar under Kipper’s sleepy vocal. Beware Of The Man is a 21st century clash of The Velvet Underground’s Waiting For The Man and Pixies Here Comes Your Man. Three’s A Charm borrows from 90s jangly garage indie, as Bad Habits is a spoken word contemplation of the devil making work for idle hands over a light twinkling six-string strum. Feels Like 54 plays the EP out with an early Weezer feel complete with oversized shirt and baggy trousers.
Kipper Gillespie sounds like an exciting artist to keep an ear out for. We’ll definitely be keeping tabs on him here.
