Spotlight: Kins – ‘Aimless’

Kins_2Hailing from Brighton, Australia and eventually settling in the town of the same name on the South coast of the UK, Kins have gone the distance and have emerged the other side with some powerful music in tow.

Their debut self-titled album was released earlier this year and now they are set to release a stand out from the record in the form of ‘Aimless’. The track rings out with dreamy, reverb drenched vocals and lush horns taking on the guise of a gritty Beirut mixed with a heady shot of psychedelic pop.

But don’t let that fool you. A closer listen to Kins reveals that they also deal in the darker side of emotive pop. ‘Aimless’ talks of disenfranchised youth, desolate and unforgiving, but ultimately finding a comfortable acceptance. It’s the musical equivalent of pounding drinks at a party before pounding the streets in the early hours of the morning after. It sounds deep, but that’s because it is. Kins are a band clearly unafraid of administering straight forward, honest lyricism wrapped in an intelligent, catchy as hell sonic blanket.

‘Aimless’ is released on 18 November. Listen to it below.
