“We’ve never liked the idea of being ‘just another indie band’,” say King Kuda. The Brighton-based four-piece, whose sound has evolved from classic indie numbers to incorporating “creamy guitars, big hooks, and hypnotic grooves”, first met at university and started jamming in the living room of their shared house. Their 2018 debut single Wildflower’ was packed with spangly guitars and wistful vocals, and now boasts almost half a million streams. New banger, ‘Bloodstream’, however, is reminiscent of electronic artists Dusky and Bonobo, who the band count as recent influences on their sound as well as indie gods, Foals.

We’ve been playing live since May 28th 2021 - we formed in university during lockdown so it was a bit of a slow burn at first, but as soon as we hit the stage we realised there was an energy between us and the audience that we were not used to experiencing, certainly not in little pub gigs. Fast forward a year and we have opened Islington Assembly Hall in front of hundreds of strangers - it was insane! And the crowd’s response was incredible. Fast forward another year and we’re now finishing up a long residency at The Camden Club in London where we’ve played numerous sold out shows. During this time we’ve also toured the UK and Portugal playing in front of crowds of up to 3,000 and we are ready to smash out the festival scene this summer and make the crowds go wild. Hello Amnesia isn’t the most well known band on the circuit, but we’re a great crowd pleaser (even to people who don’t like rock music) and we’re just keen to get out there and share our fun with more people!
