Kronedge of D.C. Release Self-Titled Album Filled with Bangla Rock Songs

After listening to Kronedge’s self-titled album, which was released on March 3, 2023, we are impressed. They produce Bangla rock songs that transcend multiple genres. Often complex and technical in nature, their songs have garnered accolades from many, which only seemed to have energized and inspired the band even more.

Kronedge is a rock band based out of Washington, D.C. and have been around since 2016. They already have six singles and a live EP. 

Their latest album is chocked full of pulse-raising numbers such as ‘Kop’ and ‘Gono-Rajtontro’ and a more chill side such as ‘Ke Dake’, which starts with the sound of the ocean. You will enjoy haunting guitar work, poignant lyrics (in Bangla) about social injustice, punchy basswork, Armeen Musa and Ghashphoring Choir, and a kaleidoscope of different styles as the band takes you through a journey of music written by each one of the band members.

Interesting to note, Bangla bands, outside of Bangladesh, mostly play cover songs. That is because of the demand of the audience. Can anyone blame them though? That is their way of connecting with the motherland. What Kronedge is doing is unique. With the album, shows, even their professional looking website, the band has made a bold statement. After many years of hard work, it is safe to say, they have finally arrived.

The self-titled album, released through ME (Mushroom Entertainment) Label, is available on all major music platforms, including the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture Playlist on Spotify and YouTube. Check out Kronedge on and be sure to follow, like and share on your favorite social media sites.

Betty Who, headliner of Kinetic Presents Pride Month event

Zach Renovátes, Kinetic Presents: In the Name of Love For All

As a producer bringing some major events to Capital Pride this year, Zach Renovátes admits that he was keen to get Betty Who on the lineup. After having seen several of her live performances already, Renovátes knew the Australian would make a fine marquee addition to the “Kinetic Presents Candyland” event at Echostage June 10.

Fortunately, she was both available and interested.

“Something that I personally saw was that [Betty Who] is one of the most pro-LGBT singer-songwriters I’ve ever ever seen perform live,” Renovátes said, adding that the D.C. audiences at her concerts come largely from within the gay community. “So she absolutely knows that we as queer people make up a huge percentage of her fan base.”
The June 10 event is the main draw of a weekend of collaborations between Kinetic Presents and the Capital Pride Alliance in celebration of D.C. Pride 2023. Other big names who will play at various venues around the District include DJs Abel and Cindel, Dan Slater, as well as Jerac and Paulo Fragoso. It’ll be a pride-filled musical weekend indeed, with Echostage, Sax, Bunker and Bliss Nightclub hosting the pulsing sounds of revelry. And there’s also the big parade on June 10.
