After growing up surrounded by music and classic vinyl, electronic duo Kinder is officially premiering their debut single ‘What You’re Like’ with PEDESTRIAN.TV today, launching their first original music out into the world.
Sisters Briony and Savannah Osei cut their teeth in DJ booths across Sydney as soon as they were old enough to get in, leaning hard on influences of Latin artists that featured heavily in their parents’ music collection at the family home back in Maitland.
After keeping their original music tucked away in a back pocket for the last four years, Kinder is releasing the first taste of their own tracks into the world; slick with afrobeat dance and thumping bass that will definitely shake venue walls.
‘What You’re Like’ has the Osei sisters laying down smooth vocals that weave effortlessly with the driving beat that seems to both nod to latin influences and dancehall. Garnering much praise already, ‘What You’re Like’ promises big things from the Maitland duo if this is just the beginning.
Speaking with PEDESTRIAN.TV, the Osei girls share their excitement about releasing their first single into the world and what punters can expect from their upcoming tour.
It has been such a long time coming but we think taking the time to work out what our sound is, has been the best thing for us. We now know who we are as artists and what direction we want to head in, where as if you asked us two years ago we had no idea.
Whilst we will always keep the decks, we are so excited to expand things – incorporating live instruments and singing. We have been ready for this for some time now, so hopefully we will be able to show case this sometime soon.
It’s not the first time the world has heard the silky sounds of the Kinder girls, they’ve previously worked with Brazilian producer Bhaskar on his track, ‘Hold On’, which hit over a million streams on Spotify.
Check out the track below, and tell me it doesn’t fuckin’ slap.
