Kindsight are a new act from the Copenhagen and the first act outside of Sweden to sign with Rama Lama Records (Melby, Chez Ali, Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes etc.). ‘Terminal Daze’ is their second single out today, its shimmering jangle pop is underpinned by subtle percussion and decorated by Nina’s swooning vocals, this little gem shows that the young quartet already are very home in their sound.
Kindsight on ‘Terminal Daze’: “After countless attempts at keeping Kindsights somewhat rowdy rhythm section quiet in the verses and complementary to the singing, Nina Hyldgaard allowed in her own words, one “Sausage of a song”, and Terminal Daze came to be. As unrelenting as a big train- steady as it goes.”
“Late August, the young quartet released their debut single Who Are You – a warm, nostalgic and atmospheric indie pop song.
Kindsight are Nina, Søren, Anders and Johannes and formed out of Nina and Sørens shared love for The Sugarcubes. According to the band, the two of them then recruited drummer Johannes to “drag him out of an unsettling obsession with jazz-music” and bass player Anders was chosen “only because of his looks and his ability to fit into small bags.”.
The quartet makes retro-tinged indie pop that is instantly appealing and addictive. Nina’s vocals crowns the atmospheric soundscape perfectly and makes Kindsight something that’s been missing in Scandinavia for a long time.
Who Are You, “a summer song written in January” was just the first taste of their melancholic beauty which we will hear a lot more from the upcoming year as the band are ready to finally share their music.
