Kinkajous is a London based band and the latest project of French duo Adrien Cau and Benoit Parmentier. Inspired by the new electro-acoustic scene, including the likes of Cinematic Orchestra, Jaga Jazzist, Bonobo, Ibrahim Maalouf and Portico Quartet, Kinkajous alternates powerful drums and mesmerizing sounds with the sensitivity of the clarinet in a unique way.
Their first EP will be released on the 18th October 2014, and will include original tracks, a collaboration with the amazing Mariama (mariama.bandcamp.com) as well as remixes by CHPLN (www.chpln.com) and Krunzcahrt (krunzcahrt.bandcamp.com).
The band features Adrien Cau (clarinet/bass clarinet), Benoît Parmentier (drums/percussions), Layla Kim (synths/piano), Rick Tipton (samples/electronic sounds) and Sjur Opsal (bass/double bass).
