Kinnie The Explorer’s debut LP is a neo-psychedelic song cycle - restless, beautiful, and just a little weird. A mixture of impatient yearning, solipsistic contemplation and cathartic disintegration, of stark statements couched in superabundant filigree, it’s a bold and unusual work that is full of surprises and unexpected twists. The young Dorset band eschews solos, bombast and ersatz emoting - and instead makes a curiously self-effacing music of dissolution and dreams. This exquisitely packaged 12” LP, pressed on clear 180g vinyl, features enigmatic photographs by Elisa Noguera that complement Kinnie The Explorer’s unique and uncanny sound.

“Impossibly young group who purvey a breezy accomplished shimmer-pop with an ingenious guitar filigree, expansive echo textures and pleasingly unstable song structures.”  The Wire
“A summer-stoned sound - both engrossing and interesting.” Artrocker
“The new band that blew me away at the Great Escape 2012 festival was Kinnie The Explorer. Their mix of atmospheric, layered rhythm and pop sensibilities is catching and impressive.”  The 405
“Something genuinely unusual.” Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Magazine
"Sure to get you moving whether it’s in the form of a sway or a head bob. This album is electrically charged… What a trip! This record has the ability to awaken a realm of enlightenment within the listener" Indie Shuffle
"Fills empty space with fluttering guitar and rhythm, as if it were one unending thought…the cyclical nature of nearly all the tracks leaves you in a meditative state" Friends With Both Arms 
"Fluctuates drastically between cryptic contemplation and simple radiance in matter of moments, managing to hold a consistent thread of gorgeously textured guitarwork and solid basslines throughout… staggeringly good" Prefixmag
“Kinnie the Explorer demonstrate an admirable lack of interest in contemporary arbiters of cool. There’s an impressive, starry eyed structural and thematic ambition evident here.”  The Skinny
“Possibly the most interesting debut album of the season… manages to sounds like a nightmare and an orgasm at once. There’s a startling fluidity to almost everything here… one of the year’s most effective sleeper hits. Reflective, absorbing and endlessly inventive.”Subba-cultcha
“A sound quite unlike any other group in the UK. One of the most atmospheric pop master-pieces you’ll hear in 2012.”  Crack In The Road
“A delightful platter of ethereal, psych rock. Their exceptional promise seems an irrefutable fact.”  The Fly
“An interesting listen and a challenge of your expectations.”  17 Seconds
“Fun, surreal and fantastic.”  It’s Nice That
“Their debut LP veers off in all manner of directions but also has a constant intricate refreshing psychedelic core, that doesn’t keep referring to the past and from which anything is possible.”  DMC World Magazine
“There’s an almost ambient electronica feel to a lot of the more blissful tunes here – but the organic instrumentation approach makes it all the more satisfying to listen to.”  The Monitors
“It’s stuff like this that you just don’t hear often enough… It simultaneously invites and defeats analysis, but the end result of neo-psychedelic sparkly shoe-gazey grooving just cannot go without commendation; it’s a bloody good effort.”  AAA Music
“Displays a most unhinged undertone, without ever crossing into undanceability. Definitely promising.”  BBC Introducing The South
“Whoever sent me the Kinnie The Explorer album a big thanks… I’m in the middle of an out there guitar led psychedelic haze right now.”James Endeacott, 6Music
