“KCTMO” is the debut single by new London post-punk three-piece Pozi, out now on PRAH Recordings.  Its accompanying video is an eerie dawn drive through the deserted streets of Chelsea and Kensington, the lifeless shell of Grenfell Tower occasionally looming forlornly into view above the white mansions. Its significance and symbolism requires no explanation.

“May the residents rest in peace,” runs the song’s angry and remorseful refrain, as a motorik drumbeat and bassline surge onwards and a violin sounds a siren-like wail.

Vocalist / drummer Toby Burroughs: “I wrote this sitting with a guitar the day after the fire, feeling intensely numb. I felt so many layers of anger; and that it’s not as simple as one person but a self-serving culture and a political outlook that is to blame.  Having grown up in Shepherd’s Bush and spent a lot of time in Latimer Road and Ladbroke Grove it’s an area close to my heart, but one with many harsh truths staring you in the face.”

Pozi are Burroughs, bassist/vocalist Tom Jones and violinist/vocalist Rosa Brook. They’ve been together little over a year, but have already amassed a wealth of material of thrilling threadbare urgency.  Their superb debut album PZ1 is due for release on PRAH Recordings early next year: a short, sharp shock of socially/politically conscious observational songwriting.
