Kiro Skiro is an electronic-infused indie rock project by Derek Bennett out of Seattle, Washington.
A young child in the 80s and a teenager in the 90s, Bennett channels the shimmery synth sounds of the former, cloaked in the haze and melancholia of the latter. Having been mainly a rock guitarist over the last two decades (currently fronting Seattle’s We Are Not Mel Torme), Bennett’s guitar shifts to a supporting role in Kiro Skiro as synths, drum machines and neo-psychedelic textures take center stage.
Imagine Brian Eno and Radiohead co-producing an Elliott Smith album. Kiro Skiro is in the next room listening for ideas to steal.
