Check out this exclusive four-minute clip of the Irish trio Kopek. The vid really gives you an inside look into these up and comers. It was filmed a few weeks ago and it provides an insight into the depth of meaning behind the band's debut, White Collar Lies. It feels like an intimate, fireside chat, as the band opens up over a couple of beers! Pull up a chair, grab a brew and join us!
The band, which has been together for eight years, talks about the critical nature of writing good songs and how the strength of the song is more important than the style or genre a band may traffic in. Kopek know a thing or two about good songs -- as quality tunes populate White Collar Lies.
The band also talks about their humble beginnings, about getting heavier as they developed their sound over the years. They also share stories about learning how to drink, play and fight, too!
If you need more Kopek in your life, and you know you do, check out this head-turning, soul-stirring acoustic version of their single, "Cocaine Chest Pains" here. This powerhouse song started with a heavy, bluesy guitar riff. The band talks about the meaning behind the song, which is not an endorsement of the white stuff but rather a spotlight on the somewhat epidemic nature of the drug in their native Ireland. The song is truly a metaphor for addiction in all forms and we all have our addictions, even if they don't involve substances.
