The Pottos



The Pottos are Colin Clegg and Misto Viscuso, a duo that work with a range of other musicians. School friends since the age of fifteen, Colin and Misto have played together under a number of guises, settling on The Pottos in 2012 when they released their first album Imaginary Monologues

This was followed by an EP Borrowed Flag last year, and White Label Kafka EP released earlier this year. 

It's a release that demonstrates The Pottos versatile approach to songwriting and their keen ear for melody.

Ralph's spinning Your Room on next Sunday's Radio KC Indie Show, tune in from 5-7pm for a real treat.


The entire six track White Label Kafka is a joy to listen to, from the bouncy indie-ness of One Of Many Imaginary Monologues, the grittier A Life In Black And White and the moodier Boscombe Promenade to the joyful Sugar Makes You Happy Now, the more guitar driven single Your Room and finally the melodiously reflective Youth, possibly my favourite track on The Pottos EP.


 

White Label Kafka, produced by Creation Records co-founder Joe Foster, features the band's new single Your Room, an energetic and melodic Indie-Pop track that carries all the hallmarks of Joe Foster's signature production style.

The band toured extensively throughout 2014 and 2015 sharing stages in Italy with the likes of Frontier Ruckus (USA), Ulan Bator (France), The Blue Lenas (UK). One of these Italian tours saw them accompanied by Foster who made an appearance at a Creation Nights Session, where he was interviewed about his stellar career in music against the backdrop of The Pottos live performance and the crowd's raucous reception.
