Music: Kinkajous – Hidden Lines

Kinkajous are a 4-piece band consisting of Adrien Cau (tenor sax/bass clarinet), Benoît Parmentier (drums/production), Maria Chiara Argirò (piano/rhodes) and Andres Castellanos (bass). Hidden Lines is their new debut album, and it is definitely one to celebrate and remember. Jazz and electronic soundscapes make this a smooth, somewhat mellow listen, though their sonic diversity is what makes them such a captivating band.

“Black Idiom, Pt. 1” and “Black Idiom, Pt. 2” kick this album off with smooth electronic and tenor bass notes that provide for a smooth, meditative listen. There is an aura to this record through the smooth piano and rhodes keys and what sound like subtle string sections that make this album such a musical journey. Just listen to “Jupiter,” with its dominant synth leads and tenor sax, backed by a subtle but powerful bassline and beat that drive this piece of music forward. Moments like on “Light Drops” with the heavy synth keys and percussion in the background, or “Loke,” an explosive track with so much colour and character, make me want to dance the night away. Kinkajous really impress with their debut album, and it’ll be awesome to see them grow in the next few years.
