Currently based in Leeds, Hong Kong-formed punk duo Kvyle recently embarked on a UK mini-tour in support of their recent release ‘ambition’.
Their recent release borrows sounds from UK post-punk and industrial music and sees Kvyle developing a unique sound within Hong Kong’s underground music scene.
Kvyle’s uniqueness is with bassist/vocalist Elly’s live rig, as their guitar is run through three amps and an octave pedal, mimicking a full band with guitars or even synths. Paired alongside Underdog’s steady and hard-hitting drums, the band performs live as a drum and bass two-piece, similar to acts such as Slaves, Royal Blood, or The White Stripes.
Having yet to perform live in their hometown, the band hopes to return to Hong Kong during the summer for a headline gig and regional tour.
The band’s mini-UK tour saw them hit the following cities:
March 5 – Hatch, Sheffield
March 10 – New Cross Inn, London
March 17 – Boom, Leeds
