Debut Release from Kind Pirates

August 11, 2021

Born from boredom, Kind Pirates is a side project of Ollie Cole. Ollie has a long and rich history of music making going all the way back to his childhood band Swampshack in the late 90s. He subsequently became the lead singer and songwriter for indie rock band TURN who after three successful and acclaimed albums hung up their axes in 2006. Since then Ollie has released three solo albums under his full moniker; Oliver Cole, the latest of which ‘Father, Brother, Son’ was released to widespread acclaim in Nov 2020.

Kind Pirates sees Ollie return to the electric guitar and marry some overdrive with some sweet sweet melody.

Of Kind Pirates Ollie says

“I found myself with lots of time over lockdown and I wanted to do something fun. Kind Pirates is deliberately frivolous in nature and it’s sort of a release valve for me. I’ve really enjoyed recording the Kind Pirates material. I hope going forward that Kind Pirates can become a collaborative space where I can work with some other musicians and songwriters I admire.”

Kind Pirates debut track ‘Coming Up Fast’ is out August 13th.
