KÎND is a five piece melodic progressive rock band lead by Matt Redmond, made up of members from all over Ireland. As an Irish progressive rock band, KÎND strives to create the unique utilising a combination of heavy guitar parts, unusual chord changes and stacked harmonies while still maintaining strong melodies throughout. The group has 4 releases under their belt - their most recent being ‘Live at Sun Studios’ released in April 2022, with plans to release their debut EP in 2023. After two sold shows in 2022 - Whelan’s Upstairs and The Irish Institute of Music & Song, KÎND opened up 2023 with a slot on Whelan’s ‘Ones To Watch’ festival swiftly followed by playing Workman’s mainstage for ExOh’s ‘The Next Big Thing’ festival. With both venues being packed to capacity for the 30 minutes that KÎND occupied the stage the five piece, plans to weave themselves into many venues and festivals across Ireland in 2023 and will be releasing the first singles from their 5 track EP.
"KÎND are clearly in the ascendancy. The striking assuredness that comes with each release belies their status as a band still in it’s infancy, and I can think of no other band on the scene today that has the same volcanic potential." -Maximillion Foy (DeMars Magazine)
