Stream: Kiven, "In The Fire"

Kiven are bringing a complex modern indie rock sound to the LA scene. Their genre is hard to pin down, but their influences are clear. The newest single off their debut self-titled album released last month, "In the Fire" is pop rock meets prog. The bombastic chorus cements them firmly in a pop realm, while their wailing guitars and hard hitting drums show their boundary-pushing examination of modern hard rock. Frontman, Tyler Demorest's tongue twisting verses match wits with the math rock tendencies in the instrumentation. There is delicate nuance throughout the arrangement. At moments hushed, at others heightened, dramatic, and even cinematic, this song grabs ahold of your ears, giving them just the right amount of relief before shredding them to pieces. Kiven's debut self-titled LP is out now. Catch them all month long in April for their residency at Hemingway's. - Jacqueline Caruso
