Racing away from the playful torn edge of no-wave song, Kaputt blurt out tracks with twitchy charisma, their catchy riffs circle with relish, allowing timely sax stonks and stop-start rhythms to drive things on. Vocals leap, guitars bluster and always the saxophone snakes, hypnotically drawn through the erratic beat. There’s a riot of fun at play in their febrile racket, but there’s also some deeply cerebral grooves and choice lyrical concerns evident too.

Glasgow art-punks Kaputt provide an instant hit – a kinetic tour de force of no-wave inspired absurdism.


Kaputt remind you of all the best bits from Devo, Trust Fund, The Rezillos and why you feel in love with those bands in the first place.
