Having spent most of 2014 on tour in the US, touring with Courtney Barnett and performaing at the SXSW and Bonnaroo festivals, London-based Kins have been back in the studio to record a new EP, Cyclical, due for release this summer. From that EP comes Young, available to stream and as a free download. Flitting between anxious electro-pop and fuzzy shoegazing, Young plays with textures and shades - Thomas Savage’s vocals sometimes sounding cherubic, sometimes pained, from time to time manipulated, and here and there filtered with a soft layer of distortion, while wavering synths and guitar take turns at the dance.
Kins are: Thomas Savage (lead vocals & guitar), Rob Walters (bass), Alex Crosby (guitar & keyboards) & Alex Knight (drums)
Cyclical will be released digitally via East City Records on 6th July.
Kins play the following headline live dates this July:
Monday 6th July - Door Store, Brighton
Tuesday 7th July - Servants Jazz Quarters, London
