“Oct. 6 The Kin The UPside Genre: Rock Australian brothers Thorry and Isaac Koren decided to record in Los Angeles to capture the soaring melodies and atmospheric sounds for their third album. Producer Jack Douglas, who has worked with Aerosmith, John Lennon and The Who, teamed up with the duo.”
““The Kin, a locally based rock group, is led by two Australian-born brothers who write bombastic pop loosely reminiscent of INXS.””
““We've touted The Kin as one of our favorite live acts ever. They even landed in our ‘Top 15 Albums of 2007’ list. These two Australian brothers know how to rock.””
"The most promising independent rock band in New York."
““Pulsating guitars and gliding strings tie together the simple, serene works of ‘Blue on Blue,’ leaving an elegant melodic tap dance in the brain. A refreshing sound, the song hints at nostalgic folk, while bearing an overall alternative bent. Wholly promising.””
“ The Kin blends the atmospheric musical wave of old school U2 and groove pop sensibilities of Duran Duran with the vocal soul of Jeff Buckley. The Kin juxtapose dark melodies with catchy hooks and solid musicianship, garnering comparisons to everything from the Cure to Coldplay”
