Glaswegian art rocker KAPIL SESHASAYEE has been causing waves on the experimental scene since last year's LP 'A Sacred Bore'. A polymath, true original talent both as a songwriter and as a soundsmith, a one man combination of SCOTT WALKER, MARK HOLLIS, ARCA and RICHARD DAWSON, creating something wholly unique.

Combining electronica flourishes evoking FKA TWIGS with Indian Classical guitar ornamentations, stunning vocals and a penchant for unorthodox instrumentation such as the aquaphone, Kapil manages to be truly experimental yet still accessible.

'A Sacred Bore' is a concept album based around India’s caste system whose cultural significance has recently earned its preservation within the Sound & Moving Image archives of The British Library - a piercing examination of the abusive treatment towards lower caste Indians.

Having already been featured in noted publications Pitchfork, VICE, Rolling Stone India, BBC Radio Scotland, The Guardian & The Quietus, Kapil was recently on air with Bobby Friction on the BBC Asian Network, as a featured BBC Introducing Artist.

Building upon the narrative of prior singles The Agitprop, A Sacred Bore & Caustic Wit, Kapil expands on issues from the often-overlooked connections between the American far-right and upper-caste Indians, to honour killings committed in diaspora which continue to be under-reported.

Kapil has performed across the UK, US, Germany & Canada alongside a raft of great and innovative acts such as RAGHU DIXIT, DAMO SUZUKI, GAELYNN LEA, VICTOR VILLARREAL, FUTURE OF THE LEFT, with festival appearances including Wrong Festival, Decolonise Fest, Glasgow Mela and Cardiff Psych & Noise Fest.

He has developed a reputation as an engrossing and engaging live performer, producing his stunning arrangements alone with a variety of instruments and tools at his disposal.
