Have You Heard: Kinetix

Hailing from Colorado, Kinetix mixes edgy rock with jam stylings to create unique, upbeat grooves that everyone should love.

Initially formed at the Lamont School of Music at Denver University, Kinetix began as an outlet for five friends to entertain parties and blow off steam. Their undeniable talent  and proven chemistry quickly earned them a reputation around campus.

Only two short years after their formation they were selling out local venues, gathering invites to festivals nationwide, and rapidly expanding their fanbase.

In December 2005 they released their self-titled debut album followed shortly thereafter by their sophomore effort Talking To Faces in early 2007. As they continued to tour in support of their albums they would build a strong reputation for impressive live shows with performances at 10,000 Lakes Festival

2010 was a big year for Kinetix for a number of reasons. Their third full length album Let Me In would be released and has been their most successful to date, landing them at #43 in the Top 200 rock chart on iTunes. A free summer sampler would also be released that can be downloaded from their BandCamp page.

In support of the album the band would tour nation wide with the hip-hop up an comers the Flobots and Australian roots-reggae rockers the Beautiful Girls. What’s more, Kinetix would perform standout sets at both the Wakarusa Music Festival and Red Rocks Amphitheatre in June 2010.

As we enter 2011 the band looks to continue establishing themselves nation wide in the jam scene. Demonstrating their versatility as a band they played an all acoustic show in January 2011 that can be downloaded for free from their BandCamp page and includes a nearly flawless cover of Zeppelin’s “Over The Hills And Far Away.”

As they continue to receive more exposure, there is no doubt in my mind they will soon be playing lengthy festival sets in front of thousands of fans. Try to catch up with them on the road this summer including a returning slot at Wakarusa. In the mean time check out the live performances of their songs “Mr. Sinister” and “People Start Hoppin'” below as well as a cover of RATM’s “Killing In The Name” that proves they know how to throw down.
