The Truth: THE KABEEDIES live in Norwich. They consist of Rory (microphone / bass), Fab (drummings), Katie (microphone) and Evan (microphone / guitar). They each contribute songs to the collective Kabeedies cause, describe themselves as ?a suspicious gathering of some boys and a girl and fling out influences as wired and varied as Blondie to Bombay Bicycle Club via Buddy Holly, Black Flag and Chuck Berry. And those are just the Bs. With their childhood roots in both Norfolk and Suffolk they are the biggest thing to come out of East Anglia since Stephen Frys colossal brain.

** Soap is their second album, and their first release on fierce panda (although seven inch spotters may care to remember that their Treasure Hunting single was released on panda spin-off label Cool For Cats in 2008). Speaking of 2008, this was very same year The Kabeedies debut single Lovers Ought To was released on Cherryade Records, backed by a wee tune called Come On, which was subsequently picked up by those groovy cats at Microsoft for their Xbox Kinect televisual campaign. Such is life in the casually evolving Kabeedies world.

. ** In 2009 they released their debut album Rumpus which, as the title may suggest, was a fizzbanging collage of yelps and twangs and jumpy artrocking angles which to some sage old ears anyway - came across not entirely unlike Claire Grogan fronting The Futureheads. It was generally described as being insanely life-affirming, got voted number 9 in Artrockers top albums of the year and kick started a touring schedule which saw near riots at Latitude and Hamburgs Dockville Festivals and hectic live shows with Everything Everything, Darwin Deez, Hurts and CSS.

** That was then. And this, as they say, is now. ?Were not writing songs as fifteen year olds anymore, says Roary. True, there are still moments of twitchy fun to be had (cf previous singles Come Out Of The Blue and Santiago) but elsewhere Soap is the relative calm after the bubblegum storm of Rumpus. There are touches of Paul Simons more sombre moods, a flourish of grown up brass here, a soupcon of morose strings there and some songs with titles like Bones and Drowning Doll. Oh, and then it gets really introspective and weird in Underfloor Lover.

** ?I originally thought of Soap based around the idea that the second album was a catharsis for all of us, effectively washing-off what we had done with Rumpus and starting again, explains drummer Fab. ?And with this catharsis we were able to express ourselves properly and in a slightly more sophisticated way through songs like Bones and L.T. I could also go into some bollocks about soap being explosive (a la Fight Club) but I think that maaay be pushing it
