I like the sound of Boom Kinetic. Heck, even their name sounds good. If you want, check out their release Future Colonial from 2013. It’s a follow-up to Part Grey/Part Bright Light, which made it onto iTunes’ Alternative charts upon release.
The band has been busy playing sold out shows across the Midwest. Lead singer Wiley Seeger says, “It finally feels like our hard work is paying off.” Lyric-man Zach Gump took the band’s sound to another level on Future Colonial, showcasing how the band has grown up a lot during the past few years.
Boom Kinetic would shuffle off the idea of a cover band and, bringing their resounding success in awing crowds and setting records in their own states biggest venues, be reborn, yet again, as a powerhouse of original music with the 2010 release of their first full-length album, Part Gray/Part Bright Light.
The two part album would serve as a symbol of Boom Kinetic’s dichotomy as a band and, at the same time, solidify their position as a group of accomplished songwriters.
As the band continues to work on new music, they have grown the areas the reach performing in Memphis, Kansas City, St. Louis, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Dallas, New Orleans and many places in between bringing their high-energy alternative pop music to more and more people every week.
In 2013, Boom Kinetic signed with an independent record label– Brainfuse Records out of Virginia. Label owner George Walsh says, “We heard people talking about Boom Kinetic. We heard about the buzz on the college scene around these guys. We didn’t really know what the fuss was about, but after watching kids go nuts at their shows, and hearing their music, which is this pop-infused 80’s alternative rock, I knew that we wanted to work with them.”
Walsh is right calling the Boom Kinetic sound “pop-infused 80′s alternative rock.”
You can visit www.boomkinetic.com to hear their music. It’s good– I’d pay money to download it, with its strong beat, mellow guitars, harmonic vocals, swirly synthesizers and tambourines. Also, the band’s on Twitter if you’d like to keep up with ‘em, or download their stuff on iTunes.
