Chatterbox: Kamora chat influences, upcoming singles and staying connected when times get tough

Hey Kamora, thanks for taking the time to talk to us today. Could you tell us something about yourself that nobody knows?
Although we write, record and play a lot of shows in Glasgow, we come from varied backgrounds which brings different influences and experience into our music. Also, back in 2014, at the age of 18, Max [our vocalist] featured in series 3 of The Voice. He was the last Scottish contestant on the season!

What influences would you say have gone into your sound recently?
Our influences are constantly changing. The vast number of genres and artists we resonate with has created an open-minded approach to our songwriting and production. Similar to most indie bands out there at the moment, Sam Fender has been a massive influence on our sound. We take huge inspiration from his melodic hooks and the meaningful messages portrayed in his music.

What are you currently working on?
We’ve been focusing on new music and recording with Glasgow-based producer, Jamie Holmes. We’re in the studio as much as possible and we’ve been working on upcoming singles which will be released throughout the rest of 2022.

What are your plans for the rest of the year?
On top of getting new tunes out there, we are scheduled to play our biggest ever headliner to date in a few months, so stay tuned for more details about that! So our plans are mainly playing as many shows as possible and releasing the best music so far.

Any top tips for getting through difficult times as an artist?
We found that staying connected and taking the positives from a difficult situation can be great ways to get through challenging times. Over the past couple of years, every band has been affected by the pandemic; it’s definitely important to retain your vision for a positive future regardless of the setbacks life throws at you!
