SONG OF THE DAY Kyanos – How Much

Image may contain: 4 people, people standing and nightHailing from my very own hometown, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, Kyanos are a 4-piece outfit specialising in all things dreamy!  If you have been lucky enough to catch them live you will know what I mean, for its hard not to get swept up by the same psyched-out, soothing abandon that courses through their musical veins.

Consisting of Zach Franklin, Fintan Wightman, Sam Golding and Seth Bauly, Kyanos are a band that “don’t like to stick to one particular sound or idea” with a sound they claim “is constantly evolving.”  Influenced by a wide range of artists such as, Tame Impala, The Doors, Homeshake and jazz harpist, Dorothy Ashby, the band sculpt their soundscapes around loose jams, improvisations and sophisticated beats and melodies.

Creative and experimental, their sound captures shimmering days where boundless sunshine heats the skin and cares are cast to the heated shadows.  Intoxicating and soulful, watching and hearing Kyanos play is like entering into a kaleidoscopic, sonic wonderland where colours are vivid, time distorts and senses are indulged.  It’s an all-consuming and rather blissful experience, one that I’d happily subject my senses to any day!!..

Today sees the release of the bands latest EP, Lost In Blue, a 7-track, heady exploration into a world of extreme jazzy coolness.  Written, recorded and produced by the group in ‘The Band Room’, this record, according to the band, has been a long time coming!  Opening track How Much is one of my favourites from the EP, encapsulating all their otherworldly gloriousness into five and a half minutes of spacey bliss!
