‘Our Tomorrow’ is here and it is Beautiful
The 5-piece indie rock outfit Kindred has recently released their debut album Our Tomorrow, distinguishing themselves from other ‘young rockers’ by taking influence from more traditional genres like folk, which is reflected in their debut. The result of this is that Our Tomorrow is a captivating collection of indie rock songs from a charming local band. Alongside streaming and downloading, CD and vinyl copies of Our Tomorrow are available now.
Formed in the picturesque countryside of the South-West, Kindred are a five-piece indie rock band formed of members Fran Crandon, Ian Scott, Helen Sayer, Ian Anstey and Clive Millar. As well as these five ingenious talents, special mentions go to Heidi Neil for backing vocals and Josh Munyard who played bass on selected tracks.
Each member of Kindred, having completely different life stories, different career backgrounds, from being a teacher to working in the fashion industry, Kindred are bound by their passion for music. Their rich “folky” influence to their rock driven sound is inspired by their surrounding in the stunning Somerset countryside. True to their name, they are Kindred Spirits, creating music that touches both heart and soul with equal and powerful joy.
Released on his own record label, ScottSound Ltd, and recorded at the White House Studios in their home county, Our Tomorrow is written by guitarist Ian Scott (better known as Scottie). The message that the album tries to express is about looking to the future and that we need to live in harmony to protect ‘Our Tomorrow’. Although this is the overall message, Scottie also takes inspiration from reflecting on his loved ones and simple summer days spent at the beach. Consisting of 10 engaging tracks, Our Tomorrow has already picked up support from local radio shows, particularly the track Sunset Surf, written about how it feels to be surfing that special wave, whilst missing your loved one.
In Review: Listening to Our Tomorrow, the listener is instantly wrapped in a warmth that can only be said as the “Sound of what Love is”, with their multi-dimensional style, you can hear each artist as an individual, yet the music draws you out to see the “Whole Picture”, I personally found this to be symbolic of the album’s message, one can see the individual, see one part, but it is not until you see the whole picture, not until you know all the facts of any matter, can you truly know the truth of it. In this troubled time we live in, where countries seem on the brink, where you look at the television and you see terror after terror, it is wonderful that you can simply close your eyes, listen and see Our Tomorrow as it could be, as it can be, and as it WILL BE, if we all become Kindred, if we all sing the same song of humanity and act in human kindness, and not for what it brings us, but what it can bring to each other.
20% of the sales of Our Tomorrow will be donated to the children’s charity Bibic, which supports children and their families who struggle with brain related disabilities such as Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy, so Kindred sincerely hope that they can help people who are struggling through their album sales.
Our Tomorrow is available now via iTunes and other digital streaming sites, and the CD and vinyl copies will be available on their site. Follow their socials to find out more.
