The Things Iso   Sat 9 May 2020

Mike's recorded a live song each week since isolation began, but this week we all got in on the act. Here's The Things I Do, from our debut album Time & Place, as performed from our home studios and lounge rooms.

There are plenty more live songs on our YouTube channel, check 'em out.

Acoustic at the Lomond   Wed 13 May 2020 POSTPONED

Sorry, this is off thanks to the virus. Hopefully we'll reorganise downthe track.

"Don't Go Out Tonight"   Thu 9 Apr 2020

Like the rest of the world, we're bunkered down in our respective homes and doing our best to avoid this bloody virus. And contemplating what the world will look like on the other side of it. But for now we're still here, writing and recording, as best we can. There should be plenty of new music from Kinematic soon - exactly when and how depends on what happens with COVID-19 over the coming weeks and months. In the meantime we hope our extended Kinefamily stays safe and stays well.

And we'll leave you with this timely safety message - due to COVID-19 we've changed the lyrics on our 2017 music video "Let's Go Out Tonight" to something more socially responsible.

Kinematic Christmas Special   Tue 17 Dec 2019

Our Christmas special for 2019 (now in its 11th year!) is a reimagining of a song from our very first album Time & Place. December 17 is a song about losing your girlfriend in the supermarket, which now sounds like that supermarket is the last one on a post-apocalytic Earth. What's not to love? Wishing all in Kineland a safe and happy festive season!

Neon Helloman soundtrack  Mon 12 Aug 2019
Neon Helloman

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 and the soundtreack is available to stream now on Spotify and all your faves.

"Two" single launch   Fri 26 Jul 2019

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!
