One night a little over a year ago, three young men burst into New York City’s Lower East Side mainstay, Katz’s Delicatessen, and held up the joint. Sort of. Isaac and Thorald, musicians who, along with drummer Shakerleg, make up New York City band The Kin, were looking to rob ears, not wallets.
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is a musical robbery!” shouted Isaac as he strode in with Thorald right in front strumming a guitar. The trio launched into an original song, “Downtown Train” for the restaurant’s patrons, winning them over with their energetic performance, rich harmonies, and sheer nerve. The Kin have launched several of these “musical robberies”, including at the Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, Soho House, and the Seven Grand Whiskey Bars in Los Angeles, even at a French airport. “We’re looking to surprise people and hit them on all senses.” Thorald says.
The Kin have been capturing their gritty pop sound in the studio, working with legendary producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie and T.Rex), Nic Hard (Joey Ramone, The Church) and others to record the songs that will make up the band’s major-label debut album to be released this summer. The forthcoming self-titled album showcases not only Isaac and Thorald’s dual lead vocals and harmonies, but also the raw power of Shakerleg’s stick-free, bare-knuckle, NYC subway-born drumming style.
Nowadays, "Oh, Honey" is not just something muttered under your breath at the bar. Instead it's something worth singing out. In Brooklyn - ironically enough - honey farms seem to be on the up, especially for the residents of Williamsburg. Not just a way to make ends meet, the honey produced by these farms is worth commenting on, actually it's worth singing about. Mitchy Collins and Danielle Bouchard decided to load up the succulent bandwagon and begin their own abundant crop venture. In searching for their niche as honey farmers, the duet discovered the mellifluous blend of their inner voices outside, wrote a few original songs, and never looked back!
Mitchy, now a hardened, troubadour songwriter, and Danielle, a whimsical forest wanderer, comprise the duo, Oh Honey has declared a reason to celebrate for the light-footed traveler through music. Meeting through friends, talking over a cold summer beer, buzzing like the honeybee, their music is sweet and harmonious. Where we all want to feel the warmth of someone else, feel a icy beer in the belly, and find a place to hang our hat, thus Oh Honey is born to relieve us of worry and command that everything will be okay.
