New Single "Home Sweet Home" by UK Sensation KIN Now Available Worldwide

Radio Programmers and Listeners worldwide are excited about the incredible new single "Home Sweet Home" by UK Sensation KIN. 

UK Sensation KIN's highly anticipated new single "Home Sweet Home" is now available for download worldwide through The Spectra Music Group. KIN is made up of brothers Lynx and O'Slick, foster sister Emmie Jay and their childhood friend Melodee. Making Music since childhood, KIN was formed when Lynx decided to bring the families talents together after many years of jamming together for fun and realizing that together, with each other's support they were at their strongest.

KIN had previous success as 'South Finesse' (as they were formally known as) when their track 'Wanna Ride' stormed in at track of the week on radio 1xtra and the video had a no1 top spot on the urban channel AKA for 2 weeks running. Together independently and without any labels South Finesse had many successes with various tracks making track of the week on 1xtra, a storm of online support and PR and music video 'Take me away' hitting no10 on MTV Base and front page of Vevo.

Many industry people where surprised that the band had such strong movement on their own and without label backing. It was this success that has recently lead to major label interest and the band signing a worldwide record deal with American based label Spectra Music Group.

It was before this signing that the band decided to re brand themselves based on their sibling relationship which is what sets them apart from the rest and are now KIN. KIN wanted a name that involved everyone, not just themselves but of those who support them. As they came together from many different walks of life to form their own family unit, they wanted to invite the world to join them.

KIN aren't keen on the concept of fans, as they feel that the word puts people on a pedestal. So they invite everyone to join them as one united movement #WeAreKin where anyone can be a part of and everyone is equal. KIN is about making the most of life, supporting your Kin's and having fun with it. So whoever you are, wherever you're from, KIN invites you to join them on their journey and show the world that when you set your mind to it anything is possible with hard work and belief in yourself. DJ's and Radio Programmers worldwide are excited about the new release "Home Sweet Home" by KIN, as they make incredible music and have such an amazing back story bringing them together as a super talented group.
