After a compelling and emotional debut single, ‘Sharing Light’, London trio KIN follow up with a spunky second track titled ‘L.O.V.E.’ Inspired by the great British festival, KIN celebrate the euphoric feeling of being in a loving and freeing environment with good people and open spaces.
In conjunction with their previous work, ‘L.O.V.E.’ seems to set the mood of a boosting “bounce back” that follows a trying time or hardship. This song’s energy almost reflects the first night out after a break-up (or worldwide pandemic), where seeing your favourite people is equally as therapeutic as it is surreal.
With a simple dance-infused beat and laid back sophisticated vocals, KIN’s jangly guitar parts seem to spin across the track with a unique funk-fuelled energy that is catchy and encouraging. Sun-strewn indie-pop riffs and quirky rhythms pull listeners in for musical fling, for a glistening cathartic couple of minutes.
It is hard not to bop along to ‘L.O.V.E’ as it truly inhabits its lightweight and restorative “walking on a cloud” essence, both sonically and lyrically. Its twinkling uplifting energy an invite for some well deserved solace that we all should accept.
