Kimika is a post-rock band from Montreal, Canada. Over the years, Kimika has performed more than 70 concerts in numerous festivals and venues. They come from a place that put the milestones of post-rock music with the bands like Godspeed You! Black Emperor, destroyalldreamers, Set Fire To Flames, Esmerine, Thisquietarmy and Broken Social Scene.

Kimika's second album was recorded in 2010. This record exclusively instrumental comprises clever progressive and ambient melodies that are built in emotional chain reactions. One of the main features of this album is segmented in three sections namely A, B and C. “Section A” maintains a tasteful blend of harmonizing guitar melodies…

“Section B” picks up after and the integrated trilogy begins to draw greater attention. Aside from the rhythm guitars aptly complying with tradition, the drums take on the notion of a quasi-patriotic mantra that stays consistent even after the face-melting rock segment commences. Enter the guitar trills, and the song slowly reaches the point where “Section C” takes over with a gradually building and surprisingly resolute foundation. For this reason alone, Kimika deserves applause, not derision. These three songs obviously belong together as a sum fragmented into delectable episodes…”- The Silent Ballet.

Explosive and subtle, intense and sober Kimika is often referred to ambient movie scenes. Kimika has been recently invited to share is music with the Montreal Planetarium especially for the “Fragments of the Solar System” representation. Kimika's music is sometimes compared to Sigur Rós, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, This Will Destroy You and Explosions In the Sky where they perform state of the art post-rock music in a beautiful harmony between roaring crescendos and melancholic movements.
