LIMITED EDITION TRANSPARENT GREEN VINYL LP, HOUSED IN A LAMINATED OUTER SLEEVE WITH BLACK POLYLINED INNER BAG & DOWNLOAD CODE
The wonderfully named Kevin, are a three-piece band formed in Osaka, Japan in 2017.
The line up at the time
of recording/releasing this debut album ‘Aftermath’ consists of
Hayato Izawa (vocal), Yutaro Umemoto (guitar) and Yuichi Umemoto
The band has been influenced by psychedelic rock, krautrock, folk music and free jazz.
But Kevin are less full on psych-rock than some of their Japanese contemporaries (and new label mates) like Acid Mothers Temple, Mainliner, & Hibushibire.
The strong krautrock influence is more prominent in their unique sound.
Taking influence from the likes of Can and This Heat
Their sound was initially based on noise
music. Nowadays, they are minimizing their equipment and developing
their own music with a groovy, delicate and devastating band sound.
In 2019, the band successfully performed
their first show abroad, in Taiwan, and with the worldwide release of
‘Aftermath’ now via Riot Season records they intend to travel and
play far and wide (when rules allow)
