Wanting to get away from the distractions of every day life – the new 3-piece consisting Billy, Tom and Tommy took their fledgling project to a cottage on a windswept hill in Wales.
All experienced musicians in their own right, this trip was a process of bringing together their collective talents – to see what they could create in a week long period.
“‘Margins’ is about the bittersweet feelings when moving on from someone you loved.” explain the band. “Fondly reminiscing over the happy times perhaps with the lingering hope it’ll go some way to repair the damage whilst, in the same breath, voicing your resentment for the reasons behind the breakdown of something so valuable.”
In order to realise their lofty ambitions for this new project – the three piece set up their own studio in an unusual setting – free of interruptions. The solitude offered up something of a songwriting sanctuary. A wintery, rain soaked week later, they emerged with 10 tracks, all written, recorded and produced at the cottage. ‘Margins’ released today is first of these songs.
Speaking a little more on the recording process, the band said: “The cottage in Wales was the way that we could all get the space and time we needed to give KIN the focus it needed. We had the dream but our busy lives as musicians consistently got in the way.”
They went on to say: “Being in solitude did wonders for our creativity and the total lack of distraction gave the stories and music we were writing the breathing space to grow. Without the ability to contact people back home or the draw of TV or the internet, you’re just left with yourself and it forces you into the task at hand which is how we managed to get so much done. On top of that, the countryside offers up endless inspiration even if you aren’t writing about the trees or animals that live in it.”
The remainder of the 10 tracks will be released over the coming 9 months, with live shows and more to be announced very soon.
