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!More music here →
Big thanks to everyone who joined us for our last Friday residency of the year in Nov - musos Nola, Pete, Greg and Mark, poets Bronwyn and Michael, and of course, everyone who came down to see the show. You danced your asses off! It was our biggest show of the year and we had an absolute blast! We have one final RED BETTY show for 2018, our family-friendly Christmas party. It's Sunday 23 December, 4-7pm - yeah, we know it's totally close to Christmas but hey, you're all part of the Kinematic family, so bring the kids, bring mum and dad, bring your mates and celebrate with the 'Matics!'
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.
