Kinch


Kinch is an indie pop band from Phoenix, Arizona. Their sound has been described as brusque power pop, "an alt-rock pop style reminiscent of a few Brit bands, hearkening back to the sensibilities of '60s garage rock." The band's debut album, Advances, was recently honored as the Best Arizona Album of 2008 by the Phoenix New Times. Their pop sound has drawn comparisons to Coldplay and the The Strokes, while others have likened them to Ben Folds, The Arcade Fire and Blur. Read more on Last.fm
Kinch is an indie pop band from Phoenix, Arizona. Their sound has been described as brusque power pop, "an alt-rock pop style reminiscent of a few Brit bands, hearkening back to the sensibilities of '60s garage rock." The band's debut album, Advances, was recently honored as the Best Arizona Album of 2008 by the Phoenix New Times. Their pop sound has drawn comparisons to Coldplay and the The Strokes, while others have likened them to Ben Folds, The Arcade Fire and Blur. The name 'Kinch' is a reference to the character Stephen Dedalus in the novel Ulysses by James Joyce. Kinch formed in 1999 when cousins Andrew Junker and Brian Coughlin began writing and recording music with childhood friend Jake Malone, while the three were attending Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix.

A few years later, the band recorded a demo EP Corinth while attending separate colleges across the country. While on break, they convened in Los Angeles and gigged around Los Angeles clubs The Knitting Factory and The Silverlake Lounge. Upon graduation in 2006, Kinch relocated to their hometown Phoenix, Arizona at the suggestion of mentor John Hartmann (former manager of America, Crosby Stills and Nash, The Eagles) in order to pursue the band full time. In 2007, they self-released their first single, Londontown, which was produced by Craig Schumacher (Neko Case, Calexico) at Wavelab Studios in Tucson, Arizona. Shortly thereafter, bassist Bryan Witt joined the band. Kinch have performed live on air on KXLU 88.9FM Los Angeles, Arizona State University's The Blaze 1260AM KASC, and The Edge 103.9FM KEDJ. They played The Edge 103.9FM 's annual EdgeFest with Jimmy Eat World, the Plain White T's, Hot Hot Heat, and The Bravery,[5] and have supported bands like Local H, Electric Six, Sponge, The Lemonheads, and more. In April of 2008, following in the footsteps of Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead, Kinch self-released their debut album, Advances, for free via the internet. Advances was produced and engineered by Alex Pasco (French Kicks, The Little Ones, Ra Ra Riot).

The album's sound has been described as a "Spector-ish Wall of Sound with great vocal melodies."[6] Another reviewer writes, "each tune brims with Beatles-esque melodies, lush keyboard and guitar soundscapes and a deft touch for catchy song craft."[7] Advances was honored as the Best Arizona Album of 2008 by the Phoenix New Times.[8] In 2009, the band continues to tour and record, beginning with the release of a 3-song EP entitled The Economic Chastisement. The EP was recorded over 2 days at a studio in Austin, Texas. The band once again offers the release as a free download on their website. Leeds Rhinos pledged their support to Kinch during the recent Leeds Vs Warrington match, where Kinch were played at HT and fans were reccomended to see Kinch at Leeds Festival in August.
