Born on Canada’s cloudy west coast in Vancouver BC, Kin Kanyon’s sonic landscape is anything but grey or drab. With blinding-bright riffs, wistful vocals, and a soulful backbone, their music will envelope you in a kaleidoscope of sound.
Their sophomore EP released in December 2018, Relics Left Behind, indulges in nostalgia, with each track rattling along like a lost ‘60s classic. It’s a hazy link to a nearly forgotten era, when all music was analog and the listening was easy. Kin Kanyon is like a DeLorean time-machine, and you’d be crazy not go for a ride.
Their new single “Fauxtown,” is a melodically bustling success that shows Vancouver act Kin Kanyon producing some of the most exciting, upbeat, psych-rock sounds today. Hypnotic guitars and active rhythms comprise the verses, leading into a chorus with vocal effervescence leading a striking hook. The bridge at 03:14 also excels with striking guitars, organs, and frantic percussion.
