Currently hailing from Brighton, England. kins originally formed in late 2010, around a collection of home-demos by frontman Thomas Savage.
kins spent their first six months playing small shows up and down the coasts of Australia with the city of Melbourne acting as home-base. In May 2011 they released their 7-track debut E.P; ‘Dancing Back And Forth Covered In Whipped Cream’ which established early on, the distinct sound which earned the band a staunch set of followers.
After relocating to England, Thomas and Jacky were faced with the task of finding a new rhythm section, which eventually arrived in the form of Rob and Alex. Refusing to waste a single day, the band restlessly went about writing, recording and rehearsing fresh batches of material.
After linking up with a UK Management company, who signed them immediately after seeing them live, the band decided to self produce an album of songs. Recorded over the winter months of 2012-2013 in a damp basement flat by the sea, ‘kins’ yields 10 tracks which aptly reflect the isolated environment they were created in.
