We'd like to say a hearty THANK YOU to all that supported KALX financially during our recent fundraiser! We can't do what we do without your support at kalx.berkeley.edu/donate!

KIM is an Oakland based trio exploring the sounds of doom and horror. In 2019, Love Lion released KIM's self-titled cassette, a six song EP on mythology, iconography and monsters like Nero and Freud.

From tales of being eaten alive to creatures that seduce, haunt and betray, the band weaves terrifying narratives into sound.
