Hailing from the Midlands metal hub that is the Holy City of Birmingham, relative newcomers Kinn have wasted precious little time in getting their hard rock house in order. Barely just over a year old the Brummy four piece are busily gearing up for the imminent release of a self financed 3 track EP that's sure to appeal to all modern day cowboys with a taste for energetic, vibrant hard rock with a driving melodic, sometimes progressive edge.
Recorded last year at Cardiff's Long Wave Recording Studio with hot shot producer Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Funeral For A Friend) at the helm, Kinn's first forray into recorded rock 'n' roll product kicks off with the barnstorming 'Want Me, Need Me', an instantly likeable and extremely catchy 3 minute workout of pop/rock sensibilities. Think The Blackout crashing headfirst into Judas Priest's 'Point Of Entry' and you'll be near the mark. Carried mainly by the solid riffs hurtling from six stringer Tomm E and frontman Nikki's superb vocal performance, 'Want Me, Need Me' manages to convey both youthful enthusiasm and adept musicality in equal measure. 'Hole World Down' continues along the same lines with another simple hook and it's obvious these lads know how to cast a line directly at the market they're aiming for.
Available from June 28th, so get your skates on and head over to http://www.myspace.com/kinn for details, dates, other 'Kinn cool stuff.
