Killed by Kiwis is a Minneapolis-based psychedelic hard rock band inspired by the sounds of Metric, Muse, Pink Floyd, and Heart. With a hard-hitting rhythm section and soaring vocals from singer Annie Thoma, they forge a voice that is uniquely their own. Their debut album “Unravel” is centered around themes of political corruption, environmental depletion, and realizing identity in uncertain times. Their newer songs move beyond the troubles of Earth and utilize the wide range of sounds created by synth player Eli Haugland to take their listeners into the depths of an interstellar dystopia. The team: Annie Thoma – Vocals, Eli Haugland – Synths, Frankie Carlson – Guitar, Griffin Baumann – Guitar, Quinn Siebers – Drums, Simon Midtbo – Bass.
