Kirin J. Callinan faithful, the wait is over. The acclaimed singer-songwriter, firebrand guitarist and journeyman has shared his first new music for 2017.
It comes in the form of a generous double A side single, Bravado and S.A.D, representing the split personality nature of Kirin‘s music. Bravado is a shot of humanity, an unadulterated love song, produced and co-written by wunderkid Dann Hume. The chaotic and bombastic flipside is S.A.D produced in London by Aaron Cupples, most recognised for his work with The Drones and Paul Kelly.
Accompanying the Bravado single is a mind-altering video directed by Vincent Vendetta that you can check out below.
Kirin is touring the US in April/ May with WA’s own Pond, before opening for Mac DeMarco in the UK in May. He then has headline shows in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Berlin and Australia before a sought after slot on Splendour in the Grass 2017.
Kirin will stretch his creative muscle in 2017 when he makes his international acting debut in Season 2 of the critically acclaimed, Golden Globe award winning drama, Top Of The Lake directed by Jane Campion.
Fans were teased last week with the release of new music by the brilliant mockumentary Off The Record, where Mark Ronson, Mac De Marco, Ladyhawke, Jay Watson, Jack Black and more paid homage to Kirin, the tortured artist they adore so much.

Up to the public now to make their judgment.
