Melbourne MP3 Of The Week – KINS

Posted by Jonty Thompson

Now that the weather is chilling us down to a molecular level it’s fairly safe to assume that nights out in Melbourne will be a predominantly indoor event. These events will most likely involve finding the warmest places to settle down without fear of a pint freezing your fingers and leaving them shattered on an icy beer garden floor.

The Workers Club in Fitzroy provides a cozy environment for such ventures, and a band that’s no stranger to that pub’s stage is Melbourne act KINS. Their latest mini LP, Dancing Back and Forth Covered in Whipped Cream, is a concept album based on a true story of a man who spent $2000 in a brothel and is baffled at his wife’s lack of understanding.

Although this album would appear to have a summery vibe, KINS take a more icy approach with stripped back rhythm and softly spoken prose. It’s refreshing to hear vocals that are mixed above the clatter of instruments, with many releases of late being washed out, whimsical little things featuring lyrics as an echo in the background rather than the driving force behind a song. This release is no-frills, honest and unapologetic.

A breath of fresh air, even if it’s a chilly one.
