Introducing… The Kamals

Official bio:

The Kamals are a 5-piece rock n’ soul band hailing from Oklahoma City, OK. They are comprised of a group of close friends all with strong musical backgrounds. The idea of the group actually coming together wasn’t realized until some casual jamming between recording sessions at Old Dog Records around August of 2011. Seeing as how all members were highly experienced playings shows and writing music in other outfits (not to mention they have been jamming together for over 5 years), they decided to pool their resources together and try something new. With everyone having nearly the same base influences and a collective idea of what they wanted to do, it wasn’t hard for the group to come up with a diversified set they could play live, playing with the likes of The Trading Co., The Black Jack Gypsys, Jonathon Tyler and the Northern Lights, and Bright Light Social Hour. River Myers, Trey Allen, Zak Kaczka, Loren Williams, and Brad Nance are still recording and writing their own material, with a debut E.P. released in February, and continue to play live shows in and around the OKC metro area.

My take:

Gotta love a sound that is a mixture of hard rock, stoner rock, heavy psych, fuzz rock and psychedelic rock. They even dabble in a little country rock. They’re an all round band, they give each of their songs a different identity and sound great doing so. They have one 4 track EP out now that sounds most excellent.
