The Musebox today announced that Chile’s Kapitol have released their anthemic new single, “All We Need”. Called by Cosas Magazine “one of the most influential emerging bands in Santiago,” Kapitol’s music has been compared to major acts such as Coldplay and Keane. The four-piece Chilean rock/pop band has played local support to Blur and Beck and is currently promoting their new single “All We Need.”
Originally named Coffeehouse, Kapitol has reached new levels of popularity in their native Chile, highlighted by significant airplay on the country’s most important radio stations, inclusion on the soundtrack of one of Chile’s most successful soap operas, and performances at popular music festivals Lollapalooza and SXSW 2015. Kapitol is currently backed by more than 200,000 views on Youtube, 200,000 streams on Spotify, 19,000 Twitter followers, and over 15,000 fans on Facebook.
According to lead singer Francisco Martinez, “All We Need” is indicative of Kapitol’s strong belief in the collective power of individuals to bring about positive change in the world:
“We wanted to deliver a different kind of message than what we are used to hearing and seeing. We believe that changes come from within ourselves and that small actions can make big differences. We are all we need in order to create and live in a better place.”
Kapitol is comprised of Francisco Martinez (lead vocals), Sebastián Fontecilla (guitars & keyboards), Óscar Lama (guitars and vocals) and Cristóbal Vives (drums and percussion). Lama joined the band in July 2011, but it wasn’t until the arrival of Cristóbal in October that same year, that the band was officially formed.
The band is currently working on their second studio album, to be produced by Pablo Stipicic, whose resume includes Aleks Syntek, Maite Perroni, and Denisse Rosenthal. Stipicic has also collaborated with Coco Stambuk.
More information on Kapitol is available on the band’s official website.
