Hometown: Kappa Gamma are a fourpiece Nottingham. After changing their name from Cromwell Street, they now share their moniker with an American fraternity for the deaf.

Style: It's finely engineered indie soundscapes with the dreamlike qualities of Bombay Bicycle Club, Wild Beasts and Foals. Just Another is beautifully crafted three and a half minutes of floating vocals and irresistable stop-start guitar rhythms.

You need to know: Just Another was released through Destination Moon, a label set up by Rolo Tomassi, who they are currently on tour with in Germany.

Supported by: Like Dog Is Dead, who they've also supported, Kappa Gamma have had many a play on Dean Jackson's BBC Introducing show, The Beat and last month were played on Jen Long and Ally McCrae's Sunday night Radio 1 show.
