A troubadour with a memorable raspy voice and an oracle/barker with witty phrases: Gangs Of Kin is Amsterdam songwriter Joël Gaerthé, an eclectic, contemporary artist. Throughout this project, he explores a plethora of genres and styles – from surrealist and psych-pop to indie rock and R&B.
Gaerthé wanted to produce beats and songs unapologetically, to employ his love for films like Miller’s Crossing and Down by Law as well as J Dilla, lo-fi beats, Flaming Lips, OutKast, MGMT and Tame Impala. Thus, Gangs Of Kin was born.
Gangs Of Kin will be performing at European showcase festival ESNS at Januari 21 (more info here)
