Hailing from the arid kangaroo utopia of Australia, The Kin have had an extensive career, releasing record after record, year after year. They have an interesting past of musical creativity and hi-jinks, and this album is their capstone work. Having amassed a history of opening acts for many well known adult-alternative bands, they've decided this will be their final product, as they’ll be taking a permanent hiatus to pursue different musical endeavors.
The trio released Modern Primitive on a rainy January 27th.
Upon first listen, this seems like an example of where American Idol Star Chris Daughtry would have ended up if he never signed a record deal. Singer Isaac Koren has an very unparticular voice, coming across as more of a professional karyoke-er, than a broody frontman. Its better suited for the dramatic verse in a Swedish House Mafia song... really.
Still, there are parts of the album you nod to, so consider this one listenable.
