Introducing: Grunge/alternative rock trio Sons Of Kitsch from Austin, Texas!
Sons Of Kitsch are a grungeicana trio hailing from the music capitol of the world in Austin, Texas. Founding members Brian Murray (guitar/lead vox) and Wesley Riddle (drums/backup vox) humbly started the band out of Brian’s kitchen in the winter of 2017. They were lucky enough to have multi-instrumentalist Ruben Duenez join them on bass to round out their Kitschy sound.
“We got together as a bunch of Austin transplants with a love of being loud, playing grunge music and tacky neon painted anything.”
In March 2022, Sons Of Kitsch dropped their first LP titled »Emotional Support Monsters«. The LP features 9 originals. Some of the highlights include the rocking Texas twang »Lone Star«, Pixies noise like »Rex Machina« and »Domesticated Coyote« and the closing Covid inspired ballad »Buffalo Stardust«.
“There is something valuable (and undeniably Austin) in SoK’s raw, unrefined sound that is exceptionally rich. The trio’s product is a blues-grunge slush that oozes an old-Austin vibe. The threesome offers a refreshing energy that feels unconventional and new – a mash of so many familiar sounds that work so very well together. The band’s tone can ultimately be best described with their name, which articulates their style so well.” – Brian Hillsman (The Cosmic Clash)
