Kinematic is a band from Melbourne, Australia.

Serving up sonic treats for hungry ears since the turn of the century. Unsigned and #independentaf. 
Latest feature song is the one with the longest name in our discography - WE ARE THE SANITATION DEPARTMENT OF POWER BALLAD CITY - from our fourth album Kinecism - it's an odd one even by our standards, get your indie alt-pop socks on and slide across the polished timber floors.

Kinematic 2019 News

Sunshine Silos Projection Festival   Sat 16 Nov 2019

The Sunshine Silos Projection Festival is a free one day event celebrating the arts, Sunshine's rich industrial history and cultural diversity. Brought to you by the Victorian State Government through the Pick My Project initiative and delivered by residents in partnership with Brimbank City Council. Projection design by Little Projector Company. The iconic Sunshine Silos will be utilised as the centrepiece for a program of projections, art, live music (that's where Kinematic comes in) and performance. With roving performers, activities for children and food trucks it promises to be a unique celebration of Sunshine.

In case you’ve been on our socials and are wondering what this is all about, Gordo and Mike went and did a soundtrack to a comic. But before you rush out to buy it for your kids, just don’t - this rollicking and ribald road trip from the mind of Melbourne poet, Michael Pardy, beautifully drawn by Portuguese surrealist Antonio Piedades, is not that type of comic. The comic and accompanying soundtrack are best consumed together and in full. But be prepared, this is not typical Kinematic fare - whatever that is. Find the comic and more info at neonhelloman.com and the soundtreack is available to stream now on Spotify and all your faves.

Kinematic launch new single "Two"   Fri 26 Jul 2019
Two

The last Friday in July sees us launch the first cut from an album that's been years in the making - the fabled, only-spoken-about-in-hushed-tones 'acoustic' album.

Recorded in Mike and Gordo's home studios, and featuring guest vocals from local and long-missing gem of Melbourne’s indie scene, Sarah Liversidge, TWO is somehow as lush as it is lo-fi - the perfect winter warmer.

The most-excellent POLARIZE and LEROY BIRCH will be joining us on the night at the mysterious Red Betty bar. We'll be peforming some classic Kine tunes and spotlighting TWO - hope you can join us, entry is free!

Kinematic at DARK FOMO   Fri 21 Jun 2019

Red Betty invites you to our festival of visual delights and audible treats – Dark FOMO. A creative tribute to winter nights you didn't know you needed.

Come and celebrate the winter solstice with us and some of our favourite musos and makers. We've invited two of our favourite bands to curate each night's entertainment (Kinematic on Fri and User on Sat)and some of favourite artists to adorn our courtyard with art installations playing with light and movement for winter's darkest weekend.

So, if you're not heading to the deep south for the dark celebrations on the island turn your FOMO into JOMO with Red Betty.
