Pevin Kinel hasn’t released an album since 2012’s Syntactic Sugars, which was one of our Album Picks of the year, and his last new material, the two-track EP SEO Your Friends, came out in 2014. Now we can rejoice as there is a follow-up in the works from the talented multi-instrumentalist and one-man-orchestra, and his first new music in four years has finally landed. Pevin has shared ‘Hemmed’, a staggeringly beautiful track, along with an accompanying video. As with previous material, shifting excitingly from release to release, and drawing from a variety of musical influences, here Pevin leans more towards a stripped down acoustic sound. He had this to say:
“You might think it’s about time I focused on recording music instead of filming music videos, well gotcha! because this is actually a brand new song from my upcoming “acousticish” album, which should come out this year, at some point. I’m usually pretty good at coming up with nerve-racking album release dates and album titles that make you go “Gee, gotta get meself one of those!”, but I’ve been kinda busy lately, so this time round you’ll have to make do with a new song “Hemmed” and the music video I made for it with some friends.”
We’ll keep our ears peeled for more details on Pevin’s upcoming album. Now watch the excellent self-directed video for ‘Hemmed’.
