Artist Alert: Kalpa


Can you tell us who you are, where your from, and a little bit about the music you make?

We are Kalpa from beautiful bath. We have Sam Kydd on vocals, Rory O’Rourke and Jamie Walford on guitar, Nic Morris slappin the bass and Dex Millest holding the fort behind the drums. We play indie/alternative music, whatever that means.

Why did you decide to start making music?  

We all met two years ago and bonded over similar music tastes. We started to book practice rooms and recorded demos and then the rest is history.

Who are your biggest influences?

The Cure, Alvvays and Foals

What has been your biggest highlight of this year as an Artist?

Playing The Great Escape Festival in Brighton was probably our biggest highlight of 2018. Hopefully we can return next year.

What do you think of your local music scene at the moment?

There are some really decent bands coming from Bath recently. The Shuks, Farebrother and Gum Soul are definitely ones to check out.

Have you got any exciting plans you can tell us about going on in 2019? 

Next year will consist of more gigs and more songs. We can’t wait to see where 2019 takes us.
