Notes::Australia’s The Kin to release Rise and Fall

Compared to the likes of Crowded House, the Cure, U2, and Jeff Buckley, THE KIN, comprised of Australian brothers Isaac and Thorry Koren, are ready to release their new album, Rise and Fall on the brothers’ own label, Aletheia Records. Written entirely by the Korens and co-produced by Nic Hard (The Bravery, Jesse Malin, Aberdeen City, The Church), the 14 track CD is set to be released on October 9, 2007.

Rise and Fall’s acoustic focus brings the brothers’ smooth vocals and Thorry’s adept guitar playing into the forefront. All instruments, with the exception of the strings, were performed and recorded by the Korens. Infused with cellos and violins, the songs possess skillfully developed melodies that swell to cathartic choruses and return to satisfying conclusions. Big epic images and dense harmonies drench their sound, and their songs tell quirky human stories that often leave you with a question. The brothers, with no fear of revealing their personal truths, dare to use sentiment that often feels radical, yet sincere.

Rise and Fall brings about a whirlwind of emotions for the powerfully gifted duo who are influenced by Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and Sting. “If you listen to the intentions behind the lyrics in this album, our intent is to stir the pot to provoke change and move from a place of feeling down and out to a place of expectation,” says Isaac, “These are not meant to be flowery love songs.” “The album is about hope from struggle,” adds Thorry, “Sometimes you have to dive deep to get to the pearl.”
