Romantic, edgy and driven with an 80s twist, Young Kato’s latest offering Break Out is everything you could want as a winter wonderland song in the run up to Christmas. Following on from the brilliantly ballsy track Drink, Dance, Play, the Cheltenham boys are back and are showing their intimate side.
Twinkly bells entice the intro and pulls straight on the indie heartstrings as soon as lead singer Tommy Wright belts out the vocals, then hit with attitude in the captivating chorus.
With over 11,000 views in just 24 hours following the premier of the Break Out video, rainbow spotlights illuminate the band in a hectic haze of harmonies as onlooking fans get a glimpse of the group moving on from a bedroom boyband to a group of lads set for mainstream success. The year of the snake, 2013 will be the year the boys from the small town will get the recognition they deserve after a years’ hard work on the gig scene as well as launching their first EP.
