Jin Kin, Futurist, Berklee Night
Jin Kin (10PM)
Jin Kin is an interesting new alternative synth/trip pop artist now living in Brooklyn, New York. He developed his sound from travels in Russia, Europe, Morocco and he just arrived to New York after recording his first made material in an old oil cistern somewhere in Sweden. Debut single "Cyber telescope", was released May, 10.
FUTURIST is the “Alt Rock, Psychedelic-Pop” rocketship launched in Brooklyn, NY, with a unique take on psychedelic rock, dance-able grooves, and earnest songwriting achieving a sound best described as "future-classic." By virtue of experimentation, a multimedia vision, and an energetic delivery, FUTURIST creates a wall of sound that inspires and uplifts audiences with their own style and modern mythology.
With appeal for both lovers of space-age and vintage, FUTURIST has been likened to the visions of Flaming Lips, Pink Floyd, and Spoon. The band is known for its associations with folk-lore and psychedelia, with elements of this culture permeating the group's instrumentation, effects, and composition.
