Time out from the band is sometimes one of the most creative and rejuvenating things to do. After The Duke Spirit finished touring their last album, Bruiser, they took over two years off to focus in other projects. And when they came back together early last year to record Kin ,something special evidently occurred. Within three weeks they had laid down ten tracks that easily stand out as their career best.
The Duke Spirit have undergone more than a few musical changes over the years, growing more eclectic with Neptune and Bruiser. On Kin, it's clear they've weathered some major life changes as well: singer Liela Moss' stepmother passed the same week guitarist/keyboardist Luke Ford welcomed his first child. Fittingly, the band spends most of this album taking it all in instead of taking action.
