- Distant Cousins - 10:45
LA-based folk-pop trio Distant Cousins offers up a blend of music that, like the band name, suggests both deep connections and a wide variety of genres – all on display in their Jullian Records’ debut album, “Next Of Kin,” out this fall.
Their original music reflects a fluid collaboration of three distinct songwriters, producers, and performers. In the studio, the cousins share various roles as producers, writers and musicians. At their live shows, however, roles are more delineated; Ami sings, plays bass, and handles looping responsibilities, Dov sings, plays drums, and acoustic guitar, and Duvid sings and is the maestro of a myriad of stringed instruments. Onstage, the band also augments it sound with “honorary cousins” as guest musicians.
Each cousin brings his unique background to the group. Duvid grew up in the Middle East, on a small musical commune in Israel full of hippies and gypsies - owning only record players as appliances. Ami and Dov grew up on the East Coast, attending the same high school in New Jersey a few years apart. Ami is formally trained from Berklee (spelling?) and is forever a fan and student of bold and modern production values. Dov and Duvid come from the organic perspective of stripping a song down to its essentials—guitar and voice—to test its mettle. The blend of these two vantage points—cutting edge pop sonics with classic songcraft—is a thorough line that runs deeply through the Distant Cousins song catalog.
