Glitzburgh Grooves: Local Artist Kenny Sukitch Releases EP on iTunes

16 Feb

 

I first saw Kenny Sukitch as part of the local band 13AM as they opened for the band Sleeperstar at Diesel Club Lounge. Impressed with the ability of this young group, I took notice.

Recently, I found out that one of the members, Kenny Sukitch, has released a solo LP of 4 songs on iTunes that is available for purchase at $3.99.

These alternative rock songs have twinges of pop, new-punk, ska while also maintaining a singer-songwriter vibe that will be sure to appeal to the masses.

Sure, he may be young, but I think Kenny Sukitch is one to watch. He’s already generating some buzz around Pittsburgh and for good reason. Be sure to purchase his EP – let’s all support local artists!

Check out my review of the “In My Mind” EP, below.

“Beautiful Nightmare” – From what I heard, Beautiful Nightmare may perhaps be my favorite song of the bunch. Unique and melodic, it is reminiscent of Ben Lee, who has a huge cult following. With some tweaks, I could see this track on an episode of Grey’s Anatomy!  

 

“Making a Memory” – This sounds like a fun, commercial song — catchy and with those ska/punk twinges I spoke of before. To me, it is reminiscent of Sum 41…which, can be good or bad.

 

 

“The World is Burning Down” – I liked this one, too. Something about it is very appealing and catchy. Something about the background beat reminds me of when One Republic collaborated with Timbaland. And that is a very good thing. 

 

 

“Lasting” – I have mixed feelings about this track. It was good – but it reminded me too much of Sugar Ray or Reel Big Fish…again, this could be good or bad depending on whether or not you’re a fan, but, it is catchy, albeit feeling a little dated. 

 

 

Overall consensus? There’s some good stuff here. Obviously, Sukitch has drive and talent. He’s only 17 years old and so has time to really hone in on his craft. A heartbreak or two down the road, and he’ll have some great emotion to refer to. I’d say that we’ll see good things from him in the future. For now, be sure to support him, as I said, by checking out his ALL of his music on ReverbNation and Facebook,  and by purchasing his newest EP album, “Of the Mind” on iTunes!  (Worth noting? I actually checked out some of his previous songs such as R_CKT-SH_P and Letters, and was also pleasantly surprised by them…especially Letters!) This young man has great potential — and a great Facebook page. Check it out!
