KINKAJOUS - BEING WAVES VINYL (LP)
Release Date: 17th December 2021
"The record marks an evolution from Kinkajous' acclaimed debut, 'Hidden Lines' (2019, Running Circle), which gathered the support of key tastemakers including Gilles Peterson. This release, engineered by long-term collaborator Brendan Williams, gives life to a wide aural landscape made up of rich and diverse musical influences. With its blend of acoustic and orchestral instrumentation, analogue synthesis and sampling processes, there is an elaborate yet organic feel to the music that makes 'Being Waves' the five-piece band's most introspective work to date. Led by drummer/producer Benoit Parmentier and saxophonist/clarinetist Adrien Cau, Kinkajous have earned a reputation for conjuring up a powerful and cinematic sound, being described by CLASH as "a key part of the British music landscape". Joined by Jack Doherty (synths), Maria-Chiara Argirò (keys) and Andres Castellanos (bass), their live performances are exhilarating yet intimate, reflecting the band's outstanding musicianship and versatility."
