Formed in 2009, ahab quickly established themselves as London’s most exciting alt-country group. In November of that year ahab released their own 5 track EP ‘No King’. This led to legendary producer John Leckie recording their ‘KMVT’ EP at Real World Studios which was released on Navigator Records in October 2011. BBC Radio 2 enthusiastically supported the key track ‘Wish You’ with regular prime time plays.
‘KMVT’ was also released into the Scandinavian territories as a result of the excitement ahab created at Denmark’s Tonder Festival 2011 with ‘Wish You’ playlisted on Denmark’s National Radio Station, NPR4.
