Their bio is simple and to the point: “Kins are a U.K.-based guitar-pop quartet who specialize in the sound of doubt, detachment and muted aggression.” The description might be ambiguous, but it’s one that resonates in their sound. The guitar is wistful, the underlying tone: sadness; it’s moody, but not melodramatic. Band members include, Thomas Savage, Alex Knight and Rob Walters, and like many of the bands joining Austin for SXSW this year they hail from the U.K. Check out their early morning performance for KUTX at The Four Seasons from Thursday, March 13, 2014. We have a few pictures too on Flickr. Kins on Facebook. Kins on Twitter.
