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 Peyote from our third album Kites, featuring some damn funky bass and a manic guitar solo.  Some media students in the UK even made a film clip for this song recently, check it out!

What's going on at Kinematic HQ

Red Betty residency penultimatum   Nov '18

Join us at our fave little bar RED BETTY for the second last residency for 2018, and our last night time show (the Dec 23 gig is our family Xmas arvo show).  It's a night of original tunes from all our albums, acoustic and electric, and your chance to spin up a free drink or a random cover on the Wheel o' tunes!  Over the last few months we've plucked out covers like Coconut and Folsom Prison Blues plus we've been joined by Mark Sinton on Try and Ben Birchall on Denkzeit, so you never know exactly what's going to happen!  Special guests this month are NOLA LAUCH, MARK SINTON and MICHAEL PARDY'S PULP POETRY, doors from 7, music from 8ish.  So, if you've been saying all year "I'll get down to the Kinematic residency next month", then this is THE month!  Carn the 'Matics!'

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.
