Swedish indie hype Kinetics released their debut album in 2012 is getting back on track with 4 new singles that will lead up to a 4-track vinyl EP in spring 2014. All tracks recorded in the bands home town Växjö, that previously spawned success acts like The Ark.
When it comes to sound and lyrics the band stays within their original vision to create epic pop music with tasteful arrangements and metaphorical lyrics, touched by both humour and angst. New drummer Daniel Jakobsson adds a new, more organic dimension to the band as well. The thought of splitting the EP into 4 singles was a consious move to create a balance – all songs work within their own concept and could be enjoyed on its own. Every song comes with a video and by the fourth single we’ll ge a vinyl edition as well!
The first single, “Empty Lanes” is a beautiful song with dreamy lyrics over a background of radio noise and melancholic strings. The lyrics are full of opposites: the soulless expression of hospitals and the process of getting old meets light memories from the past; warm summer nights when the next morning was as far away in your mind as was getting old. Music for a David Lynch movie? It could be.
As an extra spice to all this, the band will release their first album in Japan on indie label This Time Records on November 23rd, and will hopefully be able to make it to Japan for a spring tour 2014.
