Hailing from Lithuania, Keymono is a four-piece Soul/Electronica outfit consisting of Alvydas Maciulskas (drum machines, keyboards, sax, flute), Daiva Starinskaite (vocals, percussion, lyrics), Aurimas Rimeikis (trumpet, keys, percussion) and Marijus Aleksa (drums). Now based in London, their music, a unique blend of Soul, Jazz, and Electronica that represents a seamless array of unlikely genres. By incorporating electronic instruments with the classic sound of real instruments, Keymono’s music creates a sonic atmosphere that rests on the verge of ethereal.
Recognized globally for their creativity, Keymono has accumulated a number of awards throughout the years including “Best Song of the Year” from the Online Music Awards for their track titled “Everything” as well as winning “Best Album of the Year” at the T.E.T.E Alternative Music Awards. In 2013, the band signed with EMC/Sony and released an album comprised of tracks from their two previous albums, Waiting (2010) and Synthezatorium (2011). Lauded for its supreme vocal range and shifting melodies, Keymono’s music continues to be a driving force in Electronic music.
Recorded at their “Traveling Studio”, most of their 2016 album “Time Capsule” was recorded in a studio residing within the deep forests of Lithuania. In order to capture the true ambiance of their music, some of it was recorded in the forest itself. Depicted on the album’s artwork, “Time Capsule” is a representation of the beauty residing within the Lithuanian wilderness, which according to the band “Kind of happened telepathically, as the Artist who drew the artwork hadn’t been there.” Living up to its name, Time Capsule represents a point in space and time where everything stops, creating a void in which the listener can truly appreciate care put into creating the album.
In addition to the release of “Time Capsule”, Keymono plans to launch a tour spanning Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia in March, as well as a European tour in late spring. They will also be featured in numerous festivals during the 2016 festival season.
