Artist bio

Whether it be Kiev's swirling melodic grooves, their ability to weave decades of transcontinental musical traditions into a single cohesive fabric, or their affection for visualized music as seen in their award winning stereoscopic live 3D projection show, one thing is certain Kiev is about layers. Between the 5 members an intricate tight knit web of post punk, funk, prog, jazz, jam, indie, minimalist, and afrobeat styles are conjured through meticulous musicianship and mastery of electronics. With only a 3 song EP (engineered / co-produced by Darrell Thorpe Beck, Air, Radiohead) and an attention demanding live show, Kiev has already earned a number of music awards and gained serious attention from the music community including a nod from Rolling Stone. Kiev's first full length album Falling Bough Wisdom Teeth (produced / engineered by Chris Shaw Super Furry Animals, Wilco, Ween, Phish, Bob Dylan) is set for release October 22, 2013.
