Ostensibly Britain’s answer to the Scissor Sisters (STAR magazine), Brighton-based electro-rock band Kovak are part of a rare breed to be playlisted on Radio 2 with their first single Killer Boots. The band’s single Radiate was also picked up and championed by leading Radio 2 presenter Steve Wright. Having teased a packed out BBC Club, made it onto VEVO with their second single, Living the Dream and winning ‘Band of the Year’ at the Brighton Music Awards, Kovak are on a mission to fill the pop-rock band-shaped gap in the UK with their catchy, self-crafted tunes.

But it’s not just the UK that’s loving their energetic pop. The band have performed several times at Toronto’s NXNE festival and were voted ‘Top 10 Critics Choice’ of NXNE by ‘Now’ magazine as well as appearing live on CP24′s ‘Noon Show’ in front of 1.4 million viewers. Their recent acoustic ‘Kitchen Sessions’ covers have been racking up YouTube fans, with their version of Sia’s Chandelier hitting over 100,000 views within 8 weeks of its release. And at the beginning of 2015, the band’s newest single ‘Swing Song’ was playlisted on LA’s KROQ.

Amidst all this Kovak recorded their highly anticipated album Modern Lovers with BAFTA nominated producer Dom Beken (The Orb, KLF, High Frequency Bandwidth) at legendary producer Youth’s studios in Andalusia, Spain. They also worked with dance producer Andy Gray (Hard Fi, Gary Numan, Paul Oakenfold) making use of his museum’s worth of vintage synths at his haunted 15th century manor on the Isle of Wight. Released in September 2015, Modern Lovers has already been hailed in the music press, racking up comparisons to Blondie, Chrissy Hynde and Duran Duran.
