When I first heard the Brighton-based quartet Kins, they instantly reminded me of two of my other favorite bands out of the UK in recent years – Alt J and Chapel Club.

It is wistful guitar pop – pretty and dynamic, but with an undercurrent of sadness.

Their debut, which came out in July after a 2011 EP release, was recorded in the middle of winter in a “ basement flat by the sea”, which somewhat explains the moodiness.

Check out the track Jason has been spinning, “Mockasins”, and download it right here!

    This band is actually from Brighton, Victoria, Australia according to another website and not the UK.

    Okay. So the band seems to be from Brighton Australia but based out of Brighton UK. Go figure.
