The Kinky Fingers are Tayler Doyle, Earl Snyder, Jairo Barsallo, and Dustin Peterson. From Denver, USA.
Frequently pinned simply as surf or psychedelic rock, the Kinky Fingers command a much more robust, and nuanced sound. Latin and Western strokes color an originally crafted mosaic of vocal harmonies, slide guitar, and unforgettable hooks. They are unique in that they can nimbly lean on soaring guitar solos as much as reverb-laden melodies. The bands lyrical prowess is often understated, and gives texture to the musics many moods.
They've won fans across the continental U.S. through touring, along with several forays into Mexico. Locally, the band has been invited to perform at Denver’s much-lauded Underground Music Festival each year since 2014, was tapped as Westword’s (Denver’s popular alt-weekly) “Best Garage Rock” band in 2016, performed in-studio on Colorado Public Radio’s OpenAir in 2017, and has sold out numerous rooms across town, including the Hi Dive, Lost Lake Lounge, and Larimer Lounge. In addition to their headlining appearances, The Kinky Fingers have opened for many internationally acclaimed acts, including The Growlers, Allah Las, The Yawpers, Mystic Braves, Night Beats, Mark Sultan, La Luz and more.
Their self-titled LP is set to release in the summer of 2020 via Get Loud Records, with national tour dates to follow.
