Kimika - Octobre

Kimika’s second album was recorded in 2010. This record exclusively instrumental comprises clever progressive and ambient melodies that are built in emotional chain reactions. One of the main features of this album is segmented in three sections namely A, B and C. “Section A” maintains a tasteful blend of harmonizing guitar melodies…

“Section B” picks up after and the integrated trilogy begins to draw greater attention. Aside from the rhythm guitars aptly complying with tradition, the drums take on the notion of a quasi-patriotic mantra that stays consistent even after the face-melting rock segment commences. Enter the guitar trills, and the song slowly reaches the point where “Section C” takes over with a gradually building and surprisingly resolute foundation. For this reason alone, Kimika deserves applause, not derision. These three songs obviously belong together as a sum fragmented into delectable episodes…”- The Silent Ballet.

Kimika - Bipolaire

Kimika’s debut LP “Bipolaire” was recorded in 2004. This album half instrumental depicts a broad range of ambiance and emotions covering a long period of writing. “Bipolaire” was warmly welcomed and gave rise to many concerts and was broadcast in many University and National Stations. This record “capture the dichotomy inherent in post-rock, not just its quiet-loud dynamic, but the parallel extremes of concordance and discordance, love and hate, ennui and ecstasy, which also constitute bipolar oppositions.”- The Silent Ballet.

Kimika

Kimika

Kimika is a post-rock band from Montreal, Canada. Over the years, Kimika had performed more than 120 concerts in numerous festivals and venues in Canada. “In concert, Kimika’s musicians literally feel their music integrating minimalism and passion. The drummer was one of the most entertaining I've seen in a post-rock concert. This is definitely a performance to remember this year.” - Plecanus

Explosive and subtle, intense and sober Kimika is often referred to ambient movie scenes. Kimika has been recently invited to share is music with the Montreal Planetarium especially for the “Fragments of the Solar System” representation. Kimika’s music is sometimes compared to Sigur Rós, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, This will destroy you and Explosions in the Sky where they perform state of the art post-rock music in a beautiful harmony between roaring crescendos and melancholic movements.
