Sisters Briony and Savannah release their new single “No Sleep” on Kitsuné, land Triple J spot rotation and a slot on the Listen Out Festival tour.
Growing up in the regional Australian town of Maitland, in a musical family on an aural diet of dusty vinyl classics, it was a natural progression for the duo to make the jump from spinning records at home and into clubs. They started making the trip to Sydney to DJ regularly in their teens and the pair learned the ropes playing legendary underground clubs like Chinese Laundry and World Bar before graduating to their own main stage headline slots.
In a short while Kinder have come a long way. Opening for acts like Marshmello, NGHTMRE and RL Grime, playing a string of Aussie festival dates including Falls Festival, Splendour In The Grass, Mountain Sounds, touring with Groovin’ The Moo.
The sisters are huge fans of the Latin club music, leading them to meet and team up with Brazilian producer Bhaskar for their first vocal feature, writing and performing on his 2018 single Hold On, showcasing the pair’s unique interwoven dual vocals for the first time. The track reached 5 million streams on Spotify and took steady positions on Brazil’s iTunes Electronic Chart.
A few months later the sisters they followed up with their own independent singles What You’re Like, and Something More. The tracks were unveiled live at Spilt Milk festival in Canberra and giving us the first peek at the Kinder sound, taking references from Afrobeat dance jams of their childhood and latin inspired flavours. Between the tracks coverage included featured on Spotify’s “New Music Friday” in 7 territories including USA, and received FM airplay on Triple J, FBi94.5, Austereo hit and P3 Radio Sweden.
This year Kinder made their debut label release No Sleep on the legendary French tastemaker label Kitsuné. While being their most danceable jam yet, the track is also a love letter to their hometown of Sydney. “That have now more than ever the clubs of Sydney have become more of a church of dance music.” says Briony. The song received spot-rotation on Triple J and reached #102 on the Shazam Charts Australia.
