Kashmir Crows are a 6 piece band from Dundee, Scotland who play an eclectic mix of alternative rock, indie, soul, blues and funk.
Kashmir Crows' multiple genres merge together to create a distinctive warm expressive sound reminiscent of Arcade Fire, Black Keys, Elbow and The Doors.
Expect swishy Hammond organ, floaty funky bass lines, tamed yet tempered drumming, exquisitely delivered guitar riffs and vocals delivered with raw emotion and sincere passion.
Having formed at the beginning of 2016, Kashmir Crows immediately made a small dent in the Scottish music scene with a winning performance at the 'STV Biggest Cheer' competition in Glasgow, second place in the Buskers Battle of the Bands in Dundee and a winning performance at the Ginger Jesus Battle of the Bands Final the following year cemented their place as one of the bands to watch from Dundee.
With 2 Scottish tours under their belt, taking in Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newport, Inverness and Dunfermline and festival appearances at Carnival Fifty Six(main stage), Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dundee Westfest, Glenfiddich Festival Experiment, Gig at the Goil, Dundee Fake Festival, Silverburn Festival, and EH6 Festival.
Throughout this short period Kashmir Crows have supported or shared the stage with Big Country, Space, Sham 69, The Pigeon Detectives, Twin Atlantic, Fatherson, Mark Ronson, Kyle Falconer & White.
Kashmir Crows release their debut studio EP 'The Fever EP' on Monday 13th November 2017. The release will be accompanied by a music video for lead track 'Fever'.
Kashmir Crows are Ian Black (lead vocals and acoustic guitar), Rajan Vaid (lead guitar), David Falconer (rhythm guitar), Angela Branney (keys), Alex Campbell (bass) and Craig Armstrong (drums)
'Between the band's fluid, foot stomping stage presence, the lead singer's understated and conversational charisma, and their ensemble-based wall of sound, Kashmir Crows target even the shyest head-nodders in the crowd and electrify them within the first eight bars'
Chris Beatie – Radio Presenter, Wave102
'Exceptional songcraft and musicianship from one of the most dynamic and exciting bands in Dundee at the moment'
