Kins – ‘The Bold Frown’ (mp3)
The top tune I’ve been spinning at the moment comes from the delightful Thom Savage (Oh Mercy) who now fronts Melbourne outfit Kins. I’ve been told that Oh Mercy is “sailing east as we sail west”.
‘The Bold Frown’ is more temperate and withdrawn than offerings of Privileged Woes, but still holds on it’s own. Those guitar hooks are bliss, while subtle nuances that loiter around the verse have some nice Thom Yorke undertones. A delicate, introspective gem with lazy Sunday afternoon charms. Worth lending an ear to.
