The Pottos are Colin Clegg and Misto Viscuso, a duo that works with a range of other musicians. School friends since the age of fifteen, Colin and Misto have played together under a number of guises, settling on The Pottos in 2012 when they released their first album ‘Imaginary Monologues’. This was followed by an EP ‘Borrowed Flag’ last year, and ‘White Label Kafka’ EP released earlier this year. A record that is presented in full here and demonstrates the band’s versatile approach to their songwriting and their keen ear for melody.
‘White Label Kafka’, produced by Creation Records co-founder Joe Foster, provides the band’s new single ‘Your Room’, an energetic and melodic Indie-Pop track that carries all the hallmarks of Joe Foster’s signature production style.
The band toured extensively throughout 2014 and 2015 sharing stages in Italy with the likes of Frontier Ruckus (USA), Ulan Bator (France), The Blue Lenas (UK). One of these Italian tours saw them accompanied by Foster who made an appearance at a Creation Nights Session, where he was interviewed about his stellar career in music against the backdrop of The Pottos live performance and the crowd’s raucous reception.
