Biography

Kimone are Marc, Tim, Nick, Ken, and Brian. Five individuals who hope to translate their observations of life, work, and creativity into musical dialogue that more than entertains the listener. Since transforming from a project into a full band in mid-’01, Kimone have released a nationally-distributed EP, toured the U.S. three times, released Meres of Twilight on Silverthree Sound Recordings, and stacked up dates with everyone from Cursive, Spoon, The Album Leaf, Ours, to Karate and Starflyer 59. With members educated in sound engineering, computer science, art, and journalism, the band have strived to combine visceral, instinctual musical language with cerebral structural analysis. And with their new album The Mill, they feel closer to that goal than ever. For the past two years, the members of Kimone have placed every ounce of inspiration, frustration, self-examination, confusion, optimism, bitterness, and strength into writing and creating The Mill. Musically, they’ve streamlined their orchestral arrangements to be leaner and more economical: saying more with less. Lyrically, story-like narratives play a bigger role than the usual pronoun-obsessed “rock song,” as carefully selected words and phrases embody multiple meanings. Compositions were written and re-written, keys were changed in search of the most suitable melody, and prose were mulled over to avoid repetition of words / descriptions. A completely mad way of constructing music? Perhaps. But Kimone felt that The Mill deserved such detailed attention, for it would eventually tell their all-too-common story of 20-somethings trying to make sense of lives and art.

    they'd make a great instrumental band. I just cant get used to this kind of singing... too clean, stretching every word he's singing.
