Debut Album From KNTRLR


“Let synth-rockers KNTRLR’s debut full length ‘The Great Filter’ take you over. The post-punk duo’s first album is a rush of hooks and energy.” – SPIN

“It’s as if the Walkmen transported themselves to a skuzzy underground NYC club in the ’80s, and we can’t get enough of it.” – PureVolume

“Definitely listen to this band, they are sleek and
mesmerizing.”Pancakes and Whiskey

KNTRLR, the New York based experimental indie rock/electronic duo, is set to release their debut LP, The Great Filter, on February 24th via Goodnight Records.  In celebration of the upcoming release, SPIN is now streaming the album in full leading up to the release.

Since 2008, KNTRLR continues to evolve–their music becoming further charged by the confrontation of mortality and darkness. The Great Filter stays true to these motivations. From love and death to loss and family, the sum of the band’s life experiences have created a darker collection of songs that are sure to resonate deeply with listeners. The strong confidence in the sound they’ve built is obvious; KNTRLR’s respective life experiences have their music well.

Now a five-piece act live, the duo will be touring to promote their upcoming album The Great Filter.

Tour Dates:
2/18 – Los Angeles, CA – Lexington Theatre
2/19 – Long Beach, CA – The Prospector
2/21 – San Francisco. CA – Submission
2/28  New York, NY – Gutter (Album Release Party)

Check ‘Em Out: KNTRLR


Shot in a Brooklyn warehouse at 4 a.m., the new video for “CCA” by electronic rock duo KNTRLR features snarling vocals and swift-kicking drums from KNTRLR members Michael Henry and Charles Davis as well as a fast-paced chase between trained fighters J. Parker Wood and Andrew Chaffee.

KNTRLR may be an electronic production duo, but it contains the kinetic energy that can only come from humans beating on instruments. Live they play with friends they know from the NY music scene who help fill out the sound and provide an energy you can’t get with samples streaming out of a laptop.

Also, have a listen to “Stab” below. It’s quite a cool down from the adrenaline rush of “CCA”.
