Kinobe scored one of the biggest chillout hits of the Noughties, the deathless ‘Slip Into Something More Comfortable’. Known from dancefloors, club backrooms, bars, radio spins, streaming playlists, Café del Mar compilations and TV spots the world over, most famously the ‘femme fatale’ Kronenberg beer advert, ‘Slip…’ established the duo at the forefront of a scene that still includes Groove Armada, Air, Thievery Corporation, Royksopp and Zero 7.
Now Kinobe are back… With new single ‘Little Words’ plus album ‘Golden Age’ ready & set for August 31 release, founder member & songwriter Julius Waters is joined by Chuck Norman, multi-instrumentalist, producer and programmer who has worked with the Pet Shop Boys, The Pretenders and Robbie Williams.
Melodic, sublime and destined to soundtrack the summer and beyond, the chillout pioneers kick-off with new single ‘Little Words’, a Donny Hathaway-esque, soulful slice of too-slow-to-disco that nods towards 60s hipster groovy and is topped by an already familiar sounding but original song.
‘Little Words’ is the lead single from the forthcoming ‘Golden Age’ album that is shaping up to be the chilled album of the year, a thirteen-track soundscape of sparkling songs and idiosyncratic instrumentals that is vintage Kinobe.
Before we herald in the ‘Golden Age’ we’ll leave you with ‘Little Words’…
