Britain’s hottest new boy-band Stereo Kicks are due to release their debut single on June 21st. The soulful introductory anthem from the band is a bold statement with a rich sound and the kind of hooks that are way beyond their years. So it’s even more impressive that it was penned by band member Tom Mann and indicative of the sheer talent that the eight-piece have on display.
Stereo Kicks – Barclay Beales, Chris Leonard, Casey Johnson, Jake Sims, James Graham, Charlie Jones, Reece Bibby and Tom Mann – rose to fame through their time on X Factor 2014, where they were paired together for pitch-perfect results and became one of the most tweeted about acts in the contests’ history.
The Stereo Kicks’ Twitter army now stands at 270,000 fans with more being added by the day, so it’s no surprise that they were also one of the most popular acts on the X Factor 2015 tour that followed. As a result, the band went straight from that arena juggernaut into their own sold-out 10-date UK headline tour, which finished yesterday with a triumphant show at London’s O2 Islington Academy.
On every date the band’s fans were queuing around the block for hours to be first to the front with their new heroes, and the fan reaction to the new single when it was first played ensured that the hashtag #LoveMeSo started trending worldwide.
