Kinematic (pron. Kin-ee-mat-ick) - not the branch of dynamics related to motion, but an indie pop/rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Although, if you're looking for a genre to file us under, maybe it should be 'Unpop'.
We've have been making music for a while and it's something we love doing. We've created a mix of sonic treats, ranging from thoughtful folk music to distortion laced rock, with a whole bunch of pop songs that fall somewhere in between.
We're unsigned and independent. Even so, we've managed to get songs onto radio and TV soundtracks, and self-produce a string of single, album and video releases. We do all our own writing, recording, producing, releasing, promoting, giving us the freedom to do whatever we want - it's a pretty cool way to work.
Even before we got Kinematic off the ground we all had common experience with endless gigging, recording and building live followings. We'd also laughed our way past various shonky managers and dodgy record deals to put our own songs on the radio and play support to some major international acts. In short, it was loads of fun. Still is. We reckon writing and playing songs is a far better hobby than golf, which is why Kinematic is still going, over a decade later.
The songs? Download the tunes - much of it is free on the Kinematic try-before-you-buy scheme. The albums Time & Place (2005), The 38th Parallel (2007) and Kites (2009) are great places to start.
