After months of releasing new tracks for followers on their Patreon account, Kindo (formerly known as The Reign of Kindo) have released their fourth full-length album, Happy However After today. With a sound that recalls Snarky Puppy jazz sensibilities and Radiohead art rock overlaid with pop-rock vocals, the group has managed to keep the attention of hungry listeners without the help of a major label.
Happy However After is a prime example of Kindo’s diversity as a group. The album combines both rock and jazz undertones to convey a sound that is utterly unique to the band. Like all their other music, Happy However After is produced in house by frontman Joey Secchiaroli. The vocalist’s smooth pop vocals describes the banality of human habits over gritty riffs and funky rhythms.
Regardless of their independently derived success, the Buffalo natives have remained both true to their original sound and ideology that music is a shared experience between artist and fanbase. Since their beginning they’ve accumulated millions of views on YouTube as well as millions of plays on Spotify.
Happy However After is a carefully constructed masterpiece that undoubtedly bolsters the progressive pop band’s repertoire. With this album Kindo not only challenges genre borders but questions human traditions as well. Be sure to follow up with the group’s happenings on their social media and Patreon.
