The Cuckoos have signed a distribution deal with Republic of Music following the success of their self-titled debut EP, released in April 2017. "Republic of Music are delighted to be working with The Cuckoos," explains Mark McQuillan, Managing Director at Republic of Music. "As soon as I heard their excellent EP I knew it was a band we could work with and help build their profile. Great tunes and real promise." Through Republic of Music, the band will be re-releasing their aforementioned EP, featuring a new song "A Little Bit Funky", on 11/24.
The Cuckoos, consisting of Kenneth Frost (vocals, keyboards) Dave North (lead guitar, backing vocals) Eric Ross (bass guitar) and Cole Koenning (drums), first began making music in 2014. Listeners have praised the band's uncanny ability to bring back the sounds of psychedelic rock from the 1960s in their original songs—an especially impressive feat considering their ages.
