Huddled around an atlas at a coffeehouse table, the Kinetiks are planning their first tour.
In just a year's time, the Kinetiks' exuberant and intelligent brand of rock has earned them a loyal following-particularly among Lawrence musicians. Now, they're taking it to the streets.
Mash-up the cerebral stylings of the Talking Heads, the B-52s, and Siouxsee and the Banshees with the hard-rocking sound of Heart and the pop sensibility of The Archies, and you get an inkling of the Kinetiks' sound. But it's their energetic, kinetic live performances that continue to fuel their following.
Street Level chats with Rani Waugh (guitar, keyboards), Spencer Goertz-Giffen (guitar, vocals), Nate Craft (bass), and Jason Kniep (drums) about getting started, going somewhere, and doing something with rock and roll.
