Bio

Forget about it. Things move too quickly these days. Fashion, subcultures, bullet trains, you name it. You are a synthesis of the temporal and the eternal, but for now, hand it over to the synthesiser to just uncomplicate everything. Unravel the havoc of modern life, peel back the layers of stress, and you’ll find Huon Kind, this hidden gem from Sydney who ooze easy bliss.

Allow these masters of hyperrelaxation to ease away your hypertension. Feel things melt into one another, as your blood cells dance like a lava lamp, carrying the groove from your heart to your hips. Let the bass slap you with a warm hand. They are your new and improved answer everyday worry. Come closer. Listen and melt into it. Take deep warm shelter under the Huon. Pine for it.

Clicked on this because I have a friend called Huon, but SHOTGUN first review... Who are you, and more importantly, where have you been all my life? That funk guitar is just too much. Stop it.

The way you're mixing classic funk (love that bass n' Chic guitar) with an electronic sensibility is mightily impressive (a certain pair of French robots would be very proud). You could even push the croon factor on the vocals and still come out clean as a pressed Travolta two-piece.
