Kinematic is a band from Melbourne, Australia.

Serving up sonic treats for hungry ears since the turn of the century. Unsigned and independent, our songs have appeared on radio, podcasts and TV shows, here and overseas, and fans on three continents have made music videos for us (cos our fans are totally awesome).  Latest feature song is SLOW BURN from our fourth album Kinecism - it's the longest song on the Kinematic songlist with an unreasonable number of riffs in the second half ... rock the f*ck out people!

Kinematic's Christmas Specials

What's going on at Kinematic HQ

Back at Red Betty!   Jan '19

Hey, we're back at our favourite bar in 2019, though we are scaling back to once a quarter, so we can finish a few long-awaited projects.  First one is the Friday night of the Australia day weekend and, with beautiful acoustic tunes from LOUIS, and the melodic alt-rock of our ol' pals MIDDLEMARCH, it promises to be another cracking Betty show!  Free entry from 7pm.

10 years of Kinematic Christmas Specials   Dec '18

Yep, we’ve doing this for a decade now, finding a random, often quirky, sometimes serious song in the sound vault, putting a bit of tinsel on it and sharing it with our Kinefamily at the festive time of year.

Big Freeze is the song for 2018, another from the Kinematic sound vault and, yes, a somewhat ironic choice for the Aussie summer!  Thanks To Claire B for the cover photo too, yer a champ.

We’ve made it super easy for you this year too, with all 10 songs in the one Soundcloud playlist, avaiable to stream and download right off this page.  It's an interesting listen from 2009-2018, a bit like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates ... Jingle jingle!

Christmas at Red Betty   Dec '18

Big thanks to everyone who joined us at our last Red Betty show for 2018, the fun-filled, family-friendly KineChristmas show!  We had an absolute blast and the kids joined us on stage to sing, spin the wheel and show us ol' timers how 'flossing' is actaully done.  Thanks to everyone who shared the day with us, and to our musical companions Mark and Ted for kicking things off in true style!  We'll back at Red Betty in 2019 and have a few special events planned for next year too.  Damn, maybe even the Bakehouse concert film!

Kinematic's Wheel O' Tunes

Let's Go Out Tonight   Jun '18

Our latest single is out now through Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play and all the usual spots, plus (hold onto your hats) we've released a video to go with it AT THE SAME TIME!  It's a zippy little number, just right for that trip in your mate's car to see your fave local band.  And for our fans on the continent, the second verse is a cracker to sing along to ... "Sorton nous c'est soir!"

We also popped in ABC Radio's evening show on Monday 18 June and had a chat with Nelly Thomas about our latest single, why we're an indie band and the difference between a mandolin and a guitar, plus we played a couple of songs live at the desk.  Listen in here from the 2.26.30 mark.
