District Spotlight: kindlewood

kindlewood, district spotlight, give & take, desiderium, DC,

It only took one verse for me to immediately fall in love with this band. I then proceeded to find new love with each passing song. Kindlewood (little k) trace their roots back to DC/Maryland and are back in the District forging the pathway for their next album.

They have been labeled as dream folk-rock but kindlewood’s isolated acoustics and subtle melodies give their sound a richer texture that resonates with a heavier mood. Kelci Smith’s feather-light vocals are punctuated with impeccable measure and sweetness. Wilderness from their 2011 LP, Desiderium, delivers warmth like a slow burning winter fire, setting the table for the rest of the album.

Give & Take, kindlewood’s 2012 single, shows a maturity that hints the trio is quickly gelling into well-oiled instrument of sound. They will be joining Ugly Purple Sweater (DC) and Kingsley Flood on the Black Cat mainstage Saturday January 12. Get tickets here for a great night in DC music.
