Kinder Bender 

For the past six months, local ’70s-pop fetishists Kindercastle have—in true Nashville fashion—been barnstorming the local club scene with their infusion of smooth Studio 54-ready production, blue-eyed soul and hooks that would make Jeff Lynne proud. Led by fresh-faced duo Ross Wariner and Cody Uhier, their ambitious employment of strings, layered vocal harmonies and whimsically cabaret instrumentation make for dense arrangements. These arrangements, while hyper-musical—at times to a fault, but not enough so to detract from their good grooves and melodies—capitalize on a pop savvy far beyond Kindercastle’s years that has already demonstrated the potential to entertain both mindless pop hedonists and heady musicologists alike.
