& Share New Live Video
Yorkshire duo Kimber returns with their phenomenal new cut “A Melancholy Spring” out now April 26th via Safe Suburban Home Records.
Kimber are producers, multi-instrumentalists and long-time friends – Mikey Wilson and Josh Heffernan. Their northern, working-class roots and work ethic emerge in their approach to making music: DIY, self-engineered, self-produced and self-mixed, with both members putting money aside each week to slowly build their shared studio. Their studio space has become a sanctuary, with their passion for production and gear allowing Kimber to experiment sonically as well as be self-sufficient artists. The captivating duo return with their new release and first taste of new music from the pair.
Speaking on the track, Kimber say “A Melancholy Spring is about being unable to think clearly after a big life-event, and subsequently becoming a passenger.” Eloquently, they choose to reflect the world around them by burying their anxieties in the lyrics, while using the energetic production to distract the listener and cover up. This new single showcases their ability to draw outsiders into their world, while keeping the delivery opaque.
To coincide with the new release which is out today, Kimber share a new live video of the new single live on the Arts Barge, we are delighted to be streaming below:
