Kashmere is a name I’d expect you’ll have heard of by now. Having reached over 430,000 streams with their previous singles Blow Your Mind and Porcelain, grabbed themselves support from BBC Introducing and This Feeling; and played packed out headline shows at Manchester’s Jimmy’s and Gorilla, the Stockport four piece have wasted no time in making a name for themselves.
Ahead of their sold out headline show at Manchester’s Deaf Institute, today Kashmere release their fourth single, Codeine. Instantly infectious, it’s much more pop-ish than we’ve previously heard from the four; which of course is never a bad thing. Still, Codeine is classically Kashmere. Joey Newey’s laid back vocals balance out the energy of the track’s pop beat; both working together to create a chilled yet energetic feel which as expected from the Stockport boys is pure easy, enjoyable listening.
