"Quite a few of my fellow presenters loved your song Sheffield. No exaggeration, but the guitar work on it is up there with Hotel California, which is my favorite track ever." - Radio DJ Steve Kelly. 

Indie rock band Karkosa was formed in Birmingham in 2014 by brothers Michael and Jack Warnock. After recruiting Tom Rushton on lead guitar, Ryan Trott on bass and Will Clews on Keyboard, the band wrote and recorded a batch of songs putting them online. Their melodic, propulsive rock sound is heavily inspired by Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Amazons and Royal Blood.

In 2018 Karkosa were nominated for best indie band and "one to watch 2018" by the Birmingham Music Awards. Karkosa won the HotVox 2018 Isle of Wight online competition, out voting over 5000 bands, registering nearly 6000 votes. Karkosa finished off a successful 2018 with a mini tour of South Korea, following their E.P. going viral on the South Korean streaming sites.
