The Knids - Single Review: Habit

14 Dec 2020 // A review by KevinLakius

The Knids are a Tauranga based alternative rock band. At first listen this is a very low-fi recording, although I get the impression that is on purpose. Once the keys and full force drums come in, they set a Florence And The Machine type scene with angsty vocals from Mike and complementary clean vocals from Corinne. The piano solo stands out and is almost too short, leaving you hanging for more.

The lyrics and the accompanying music video for Habit are emotive, and in my opinion, paint a young love story - it's definitely worth watching. Mike is a multi-instrumentalist - playing, recording and mixing; capturing a raw uncompromising sound.

Mike and Corinne also play in The Dead Man 6, with the body of The Knids material coming from their "cutting room floor", you can more find here. I give this track a thumbs up, and a 3/5 and I'll look forward to hearing more from Mike and Corinne.

Rating: ( 3 / 5 )

The Knids are Michael Baxter, Corinne Rutherford and Chris Shennen. Loosely classifying themselves as alternative indie-pop rockers, there may be something else in their mix which will surprise you. Sit back. Have a listen, and prepare yourselves for a new experience.
