Releasing their second single of the year, Puppet Theory are premiering ‘Katia’ on ICM today.

The Manchester quartet are quickly climbing the music ladder and ‘Katia’ has made them climb a couple more. Already hitting radio waves in the States, Canada and in the UK, Puppet Theory’s single is their most refined to date.

It’s an uplifting anthem that follows suit of previous release ‘Strike Three’ and similarly follows their fanbase’s ideas as the video starts off with a new fan who is loving the energetic rock track and decides to go to their Deaf Institue show.

Infusing their trademark 2000s indie pop and American rock, guitarist Johnny Hearldon, along with Chris (singer and rhythm guitar), Niall (bass) and Paul (drums) have created another loud and intricate rock song.

Comprised of huge hooks and stadium sized guitar tones, Puppet Theory manage to capsulise catchy lyrics, powerful echoey vocals and those riffs that will never get out of your head. It has the right balance of power and elegance that makes this song a well-engineered masterpiece.
