This latest piece of skewed electronica from Glasgow’s Kinbote is quite exquisite.
Quite reminiscent of BM faves Clouddead with a slice of Boards of Canada-esque wash, there is however an air of urgency in the heavy bass during the galloping verses which recalls even Bloc Party at their most epic. The project is the lovechild of Glasgow-based Matt Gibb and has the backing of the always adventurously-minded Lost Map – the track is a teaser for an album due out in March 2024.
At one point the track grinds to a halt, and could well be over, but further ambient noise takes over, almost a different song, until it finally fades to nothing. Impressive and quite a development of Kinbote’s overall sound and direction.
