Alternative 5-piece originating from the heart of Suffolk but now based in Brighton. Taking influence from artists such as Crumb and Harvey Sutherland, KYANOS have crafted their identity in the psych-sphere with a unique blend of experimental, jazz-inspired soundscapes.
Whilst their fan base across the UK and the rest of the world continues to grow at pace, KYANOS have received strong support and extensive airplay from BBC 6Music and BBC Suffolk.
Through this continued support, KYANOS were given the opportunity to record a live session at BBC MAIDA VALE, before supporting acts such as Melt Yourself Down and Lucy Lu at packed out shows in London and venues across the South-East.
The band played their last live show before the national lockdown in 2020 to a crowded Hope and Ruin in Brighton, before writing and recording ‘THE ISOLATION TAPE’ remotely, raising a substantial amount of money for the NHS and receiving support from NME and BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson in the process.
Through the support of the band’s single ‘FOOL’S BLUE’ from BBC Introducing, KYANOS were invited to perform at LATITUDE Festival 2021 on the Alcove Stage not long after being added to the line-ups of new city-wide industry facing showcase festivals WILD PATHS and SOUND CITY in Norwich and Ipswich respectively.
The band spent the end of 2021 in the studio working on their next project and are excited to be releasing new music in the near future.
• Enter Laughing
Four-piece band based in North London. Their music fuses elements of post punk and psychedelia, with their performances being compared to Talking Heads, Tame Impala and the Doors.
Featured by BBC Introducing, the band has a unique ability to interplay synths, experimental guitar and funky basslines with earworm melodies, and this richness of sound comes alive in their dynamic live sets.
2021 saw the band (fka Hollis Lomax) play renowned London venues such as the Waiting Room, George Tavern and Strongroom, and they have shared bills with the likes of Pynch, Mandrake Handshake and Civil Partnership.
With an exciting collection of new songs set to be released in 2022, there has never been a better time to catch Enter Laughing live.
