coverKadinja – There is quite a buzz around this young, French band at the moment and rightfully so. They come with a breeze of fresh air and huge potential, brilliant technical skills and an uplifting sound. It was a bit unfortunate that the sound in the building didn’t do the music justice, but if you were familiar with their songs before Kadinja did not disappoint. Behind a curtain of long hair there is some incredible guitar work going on and the loud bass instantly puts a smile on my face, all coming out so playful and tasty. The singer’s strong, distinctive voice is very pleasant on the ears and particularly impressive during the clean parts in the song “Henry Call Mash Yes” (such a fun song title, and also one of my favourite singles this year). It’s great to see how everyone in the band is having a good time on stage and that their music is loved by the crowd as well. I’m hoping to see Kadinja live soon again, for now I’m (im)patiently waiting for a full album.
