https://www.facebook.com/karpathia.band

Founded in DIT BIMM Music College in 2015, Alex Winter from Dublin who got his first taste of music from school concerts when he was 13 shortly later given his first guitar, this started him as a solo singer/songwriter in and out bands influenced by Radiohead ,Foals, the cure Tame Impala and The Strokes, when he made the choice to attend BIMM as a Songwriter. This is where he met lead guitarist, Joseph Reddin from Clane, Kildare. Influenced by The Villagers, Laura Marling Elliot Smith and more. At the time thinking nothing of it decided to get a project started to write together, Then contacted drummer Conor Reynolds Influenced now by This town needs guns and Buke & Gase also from Clane a childhood friend of Josephs who have played together for years and this was easy to tell from the way they play together, also recruited was Bassist Jordan McGovern from Dublin he first met Joseph through other BIMM projects when asked to join, His influences The Strokes, Joy Division ,Stone roses as well classic punk bands like the dead boyz.
Karpathia have a sound like ‘Something you would hear on a Fifa soundtrack! Fun, Fantastic and Marketable’ With the beautifully dynamic vocal from the frontman who could get any party going! Lead guitarist and bassist both bring an essence of punk to the playing field synced with the perfect timed drummer, This Indie/Alt/awesome! Sound feels new but Nostalgic at the same time. “Can’t wait for the EP! – Writing by anonymous fan.

The 4 piece are expected to release there EP this Spring and should be touring from Gig to Festival in the summer.
