Come Down

Filmed live at Have Mercy

June 18, 2017


Boreal Kinship is a 5 piece experimental rock band hailing from the northern city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.


This Quintet excels at incorporating multiple instruments into their songs as well as using multiple vocal styles and tonalities in order to fuel a dynamic and fluid soundscape.

Mould this with story and concept-based songwriting, an exciting stage-presence and you are sure to have an extraordinarily unique experience while with Boreal Kinship.

Forming from unexpected chaos with a previous band in 2016, Kyle(Drums/Synth), Carl(Guitar/Multi-instrumentalist), and Garnet(Vocals) continued on by forming Boreal Kinship. They further anchored their foundation by adding the talented guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Alex to their group, later followed by bassist/multi-instrumentalist Adam.

Pressing on into 2018 and beyond they continue their journey, crossing over the borders of many genres in order to give the listener a truly awesome experience.
