Young Kato Announce video for debut single ‘Something Real’ and full UK headline tour

Today Young Kato have today unveiled the video for brand new single ‘Something Real’ (released June 3rd on BMG Records). If the band name doesn't strike an immediate chord, but like me you have a guilty pleasure in the form of Made In Chelsea, this band was the one performing on the show this series at the Barfly. I have a sneaking suspicion that their great live performance was the only genuine aspect to those scenes, considering I have never seen the Barfly looking that... well, posh!!

The new  video shows lead singer Tommy Wright  being dragged by a rope through the streets of the UK. Filmed on the coldest day of the year in a number of locations in the UK, the video reaches its climax on the Kent coastline in Denge, a former Airforce base where enormous concrete ‘ears’ were built to hear incoming aircraft during the 1920’s.
 
I won't give more away about the treatment, so you can enjoy the series of events yourself, but Tommy tweeted “I’ve gone through every pain in the book for this band,” “I’ve been pulled through the ocean, I nearly got hypothermia, I’ve been punched in the face, dragged along the concrete and had cuts in my shirt and through to my skin.”

Since the release of the critically acclaimed Young Kato EP in the summer of 2012, Young Kato have been touring the country, headling various shows and securing impressive support slots with the likes of Spector, Bastille, Swim Deep, We Are Scientists and Peace. The Young Kato EP hit #31 in the main iTunes album charts as well as breaking into the top 10 of the Alternative charts. and re-entered the album Top 40 for a second time this week. 

Already gaining national airplay from Absolute Radio for the single as well as being featured on 4 Music and Topman’s now must-have tastemaker Mixtape, Young Kato recently signed by BMG for both publishing and records and headed straight into the studio with a fistful of killer demos and producer Gordon Mills Jr.  With an average age of just 18, Young Kato have continued their knack of writing incredibly danceable, synth edged indie-rock and rapidly produced three potential singles in those first recording sessions.
