Kill Rock Stars are pleased to announce Cosy Moments, the first Kinski album since 2007’s Down Below It’s Chaos, and premiere the first single “Conflict Free Diamonds” via MTV Hive. You can listen to the track here or download it from Soundcloud here.
Due out on April 2, Cosy Moments is filled with the glistening, graceful chords and heavy proto-punk rhythms that have become Kinski’s hallmarks over the past 14 years of playing music together. Not that the band is walking in their own musical footprints on the new album. Instead, Cosy Moments is the result of Chris Martin, the band’s songwriter, spending the last few years figuring out where to go next musically. “We wanted to make something more direct,” Martin said. “That was the kind of music I kept finding myself listening to and that’s what we tried to do. I was getting tired of hearing people step on wah pedals and solo over psych rock. There were so many bands doing that, including us. We’ve always had poppy, song-ish elements but we took them further this time.”
