Party Rock. It’s a self-created genre, not ostentatious but simply a description of what a Kinetix show has come to be. “Our goal has always been to channel the energy in a room and put on a performance. We want people to forget their problems and let loose. We put on a rock show,” lead guitarist Jordan Linit says. Kinetix are equal parts pop and rock, like being warmly serenaded but knowing there’s a strong possibility of getting punched in the stomach. They blend pop sensibilities with searing guitar work and a physical, flexible rhythm section to create, well, Party Rock. The music is well composed and full of energy. The result has created a loyal, diverse audience spread throughout cities and towns across the country. “You’ve got to play a show, first and foremost,” says drummer Jack Gargan. “A sold out venue or an intimate room, the song remains the same, so to speak. It’s all about, what can we do to make sure everyone in that room walks out with a smile?” And play shows, they have. Culled from a few years, 400 gigs and 40,000 miles of interstate, Kinetix’s music is a direct byproduct of their journey.
