Northern Kind New Album Release: ‘Credible Sexy Unit’

September 29, 2013

Kajafax is not only about Kajagoogoo – we also like to showcase other artists that are in some way affiliated with, or are of particular interest to fans of Kajagoogoo.

Lots of our readers attended the 2009 ‘Space Cadet’ tour and will remember the rather special support act for most of those dates, namely Leicester electronic duo and purveyors of extraordinary electronica, ‘Northern Kind’. 


Matt Culpin and Sarah Heeley aka Northern Kind are friends of KajaFax and both Steve C and myself, like many others, have been eagerly awaiting the forthcoming long-player ‘Credible Sexy Unit’.  Recorded at their private studio in Leicestershire, ‘Credible Sexy Unit’  follows acclaimed albums ‘Wired’ in 2009 and 2007’s ‘53 Degrees North’ , which topped album and download charts across Europe, gained the band a passionate following in the UK, and won them a prestigious support slot with Gary Numan and Alan Wilder at the iconic Postbahnof, Berlin.  The duo were seen most recently headlining the ‘Silicon Dreams’ festival alongside British electronic music legend Martyn Ware and pop icons Heaven 17.

They are also set to play the i-Synth II festival in Lille, France from April 24th to 26th 2014.


The band held an online preview event last night in support of the record.

Not surprisingly, the preview event was a huge success (over 11k of plays!) and gave us all the opportunity for that limited time to hear the album in full.  KajaFax, like many others, was online to enjoy that preview event and can only use the adjective used by just about everybody else…..exquisite.

It’s the Northern Kind you know and love, only platinum plated 🙂

The album is available to purchase via the band’s website, with all pre-order copies signed by the duo.


For more information, a sneaky album preview, and to be redirected to the Northern Kind website where you can get all the very latest on the group, follow THIS link.

The release date is October 21st, but those who ‘pre-order’ will have their copies shipped a little earlier

If you are like me, you want your copy ASAP….

    I was at the event last night Steve and purchased two copies of CSU, for me and my sis. Saw NK on the Space Cadet tour. Absolutely LOVED them . Not been lucky enough to see them since but hope I will eventually. I’m sure CSU will be just as brilliant as the previous albums. 😀

      It was great to have that preview wasn’t it Joanne? I too ordered my copy and can’t wait to get it fired up into the hi-fi (how retro did that sound!)

      NK are a classy act and lovely people too.

      Let’s get this article all over facebook and twitter and help Matt and Sarah make the CD the success it deserves to be 🙂
