Kartica are a five-piece indie/rock band from Sheffield. Formed in May 2008, they have steadily been building their following and reputation in their home city and beyond.

A band that convey emotion, frustration, hope and belief. Blending a mix of driving guitars and heavy drum-beats with dreamy riffs and anthemic melodies, Kartica achieve a roaring sound with echoes of Oasis, The Verve, Ocean Colour Scene and The Stone Roses amongst others. Written with meaning and soul, Kartica have a range of songs that stretch from the menacing to the heart-rending.

Recent gigs with The Twang, The South (Ex-Beautiful South) and The Complete Stone Roses have seen the band’s profile rise further.

In late March the band released their first single Don’t You Think So? and secured support slots with ex-Little Man Tate front-man Jon Windle, and breaking band All The Young.
