About Real Kevin

Real Kevin has been creating their take on garage rock, post-punk & grunge, and performing throughout southern Ontario for the last few years. In 2021 they released their double album Ninety Four, featuring eight tracks pulling from their indie rock influence on one side (Ninety Four), and eight tracks that drive toward a heavy grunge sound on the other (‘94). Both sides are on display at their live shows, one of the many reasons the band was a finalist in one of 97.7 HTZ-FM’s Rock Search competitions. The band is currently recording new material, and set to release new singles soon.

ABOUT THE SINGLE  “Sky Kiss” – out now

“This song is technically a cover but interestingly, we do not know who the original artist is. An uncredited snippet appears at the end of the Bob’s Burgers episode “Bob Actually” from season 7. The song is listed as “The Runs” online which is evidently a fake band name. We heard it and started playing it at shows and it fit in our set so well that we decided to record and release it.

We’ve put some of our own touches on this song but it’s mostly a cover. The band recorded and produced the song ourselves in our basement rehearsal studio and it was a lot of fun to work on. Has a bit of that “wall-of sound” guitar that gives it a shoegaze sound with a falsetto ear worm for a chorus. We also had to come up with a way to start the song and all come in together and since we are huge fans of “Be My Baby” by The Ronettes, we decided to pay a little homage to its drum intro”
