TVD Premiere:
Kim Killspeed, “Inside”

“‘Inside’ is about hating work and quitting my job to rock on. It’s about having faith in yourself to go and pursue what’s in your head, in your dreams, even if it’s against societal norms. I actually wrote it for a heavy metal band that I was auditioning for a few years ago.

I’m not very heavy metal. Meeting Jeff Martin, I was so worried about looking like a big amateur! But he was very engaged in the music and very supportive, especially whilst we were tracking the vocals. I felt the most comfortable I’ve ever been whilst singing. He is the epitome of someone who lives and breathes music. If I’ve learnt anything, it’s that the dream is real and to keep pursuing it.”
Candy Cunningham

Aussie quintet Kim Killspeed go “Inside” for inspiration.

We have the pleasure of premiering the newest single from the Sydney-based rockers whose anticipated EP “Second Skin” is due out later this year. “Inside” finds the band reigning in their messy blues gravitas for a more streamlined approach and hook-driven sound.

The new direction might possibly have to do with producer Jeff Martin of The Tea Party whose signature jangly, open tuned stamp is written all over it. That said, the band’s distinct characteristics are still warmly accounted for—particularly Andie Davies’ and Bruce Stephens’ muscular guitar lines and Candy Cunningham’s earthy songwriting which prods the listener to throw caution to the wind and pursue the impassioned voices in their head.
