Kinky Creature

Kinky Creature


We are an indie-rock band from Burlington, VT. We recently released our debut EP "Tiny Rooms" produced by Kyle "Slick" Johnson.


What is a kinky creature?

A creature that has leapt boldly into darkness, discovered a truer nature, and rejected the prohibition of pleasure.

Some creatures love to be tickled.
Some creatures have many toes.
Some creatures make beautiful music.

The men of Kinky Creature pile filth on top of love, blend heartbreak and swagger. Finding only a little lifeblood left in the indie rock vein of the last fifteen years, they take as they like and bury the rest in fuzz and chime. The sound is an unlikely elemental fusion of aching guitar and synth work with Bonham-esque percussive tornadoes and a slinky, always vaguely menacing low end. This is music for the first orgy after a rough break-up; a gentle nostalgic tear may fall from your chin as your body becomes a writhing sexual dynamo.

Only months after forming in Burlington, Vermont, the band traveled to Philadelphia in early 2012 to record with producer Kyle "Slick" Johnson (Cymbals Eat Guitars, Wavves), who painted their close heat with the expansive, expressive sound it always deserved. The result was the band's debut EP, "Tiny Rooms," which has been described as "razor-sharp pop hooks shot through a dirt-encrusted prism."

On stage, this surprisingly tender intensity is enhanced by a mischievous sense of humor and the constant threat of refined and delightful depravity, making a Kinky Creature show the kind of life affirming experience that usually gets someone laid.
