Kinski is a four-piece rock band from Seattle, WA. The band follows their instincts to explore pathways from visceral guitar rock, to sonic and heady avant-psych rock, and sparse, atmosphere-bending instrumentals. Currently the band finds itself with a newfound intensity and lyrical directness. NME has described Kinski as: “Like Sabbath in a washing machine during a power surge.” Comprised of guitarists Chris Martin and Matthew Reid-Schwartz (Matthew also plays keyboards and flute), bassist Lucy Atkinson, and drummer Barrett Wilke, Kinski has toured with Mission of Burma, Comets on Fire, Oneida, Mono, Black Mountain, Tool, and Acid Mothers Temple. In 2013, the band has released a powerful and vital new album entitled Cosy Moments on Kill Rock Stars. The album is filled with the glistening, graceful chords and heavy proto-punk rhythms that have become Kinski’s hallmarks over the last 14 years of playing music together. official website obligatory Facebook page
