Manitoba-based folk-pop trio KIN released today their first video, for their new song Coastal Friend. Directed by Randy Frykas, and featuring the band, as well as bassist and friend Julian Bradford, the video is the culmination of several months of work by several people. The song Coastal Friend, in English, is the trio’s most recent, which usually presents bilingual shows.
KIN’s lead vocalist Danielle Burke and brothers Ivan and Eric charm French and English audiences alike with their smart song-writing and spectacular musical precision. The band has recorded a CBC Canada Live concert with Juno-award winners Chic Gamine, has played numerous times at Festival du Voyageur, and has recently returned from Whitehorse where their most recent album garnered a nomination for Francophone Album of the Year at this year’s Western Canadian Music Awards.
The video is available on Vimeo’s website. The album is available for purchase on the band’s website, in store and on iTunes.
