Kairos Creature Club returns to Chattanooga in support of their debut album ‘KCC’ out June 7 on Greenway Records. Kimi Carter will be opening the show.

Jacksonville, Florida-based musicians Lena Simon (of La Luz) and Glenn Van Dyke (of BOYTOY) created the band Kairos Creature Club as a highly collaborative project. They aim to explore music and embrace spontaneity, paying no attention to genre limitations. The result is an insanely groovy mix of psychedelic surf rock, indie pop, and krautrock.

Kairos Creature Club is set to play at The Boneyard in Chattanooga on Thursday, June 9.

The debut EP from Kairos Creature Club, Join The Club, released in 2021, included contributions from Lucas Harwood of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. During the tours in support of that record, the band performed alongside artists such as Caroline Rose and Frankie and the Witch Fingers.

The band’s follow-up to Join The Club is their debut full-length album, self-titled KCC, out on June 7 via Greenway Records. The new release has Simon and Van Dyke in complete control of the process, writing and producing everything on their own.

While the project as a whole is about kismet and synergy, this new S/T [self titled] full length (out June 7 on Greenway Records) has Simon and Van Dyke taking the reins as producers and flexing as songwriters. In the wake of habitual acquiescence, the duo felt it was important to realize the album’s song concepts from an individual voice. In turn, this record serves as a measure of growth, a moment for the duo, individually, to say, “I am enough and I choose you!” rather than rely on broader collaboration as a crutch. It’s a record about conflict, catharsis and indulgence. It’s vulnerable, and is posited as bait to entice future members.

Don’t miss the chance to join the Kairos Creature Club live in Chattanooga!

Thursday, June 9 at The Boneyard Bar, 26 Station St, Chattanooga 9PM //
