KERMIT is an experimental post-rock project from Malaga (Spain) that was born from the desire to experiment with the endless possibilities offered by two guitars, a bass and a drumkit. The result is a landscape of multiple textures that make sense when played together, only when superimposed.

KERMIT's musical influences include the names of Slint, Radiohead, Afghan Whigs, At The Drive-In, Refused, Tortoise, Manta Ray, Portishead, Shiner, Sonic Youth, Liars, Mogwai, Karate, Burning Airlines, Cinematic Orchestra, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, etc., yet its influences also cover other fields such as literature, films, graphic art & design, etc. "[...] this post-rock band from Malaga is fond of extensive crescendos, tiny twisting noises, sound landscapes, Martian guitar sounds and, above all, tastefulness.
