Indie Pop Rock
Kingston County formed in late 2016 starting out as two horn players and a singer experimenting with melodies in a garage. As they started to see these melodic creations come to life, new members joined and formed the 7 piece group now known as Kingston County. The group describes their sound as Indie Pop Rock drawing influence from an eclectic mix of genres. Often described as singer/songwriter tunes made for a larger band, locally they have become renowned for their electric shows thriving off the Garret-esque nature of lead singer, Matt Lister. In addition to this, their considered compositions feature addictive horn lines accompanied by an array of guitar and synth hooks. The group recorded their first EP, Bottomless Hippopotamus in 2017 and successfully toured the east coast of Australia selling out The Brass Monkey and gaining notable chart position on the Triple J Unearthed charts. In 2018 Kingston County featured on the Delta stage at Bluesfest having finished second in the Busking Competition and have been working weekly at a studio to release their self produced single “Something Better” which will be released in the second half of the year.
