World Cafe: Next - From Cardiff, Wales, Surf-Obsessed Kutosis Are A Power-Pop Trio

We travel to Cardiff, Wales for our World Cafe: Next artists this week. They are the power-pop trio Kutosis.  They released their second album Dream It Away last week on Jealous Lover's Club Records.  "Post punk, reverb-drenched and breezy" – that is how their new album has been described and it all makes sense when you see how surf-obsessed these guy are from the song titles (“Crystal Beach” and “Night Surf” to the cover photo). We will play you a couple of songs. Don’t forget to download our World Cafe: Next podcast with two songs from Kutosis.
