You are Kirin J Callinan. You are from Australia. You don't put a period after your middle initial. You slick your hair back, mostly to keep it out of the way. You will be moving a lot, herky-jerky.

"Kirin J Callinan is 2013′s most kinetic, confounding, and exciting "new" artist. For real! This is an opinion easier to come upon, and maintain, if you've had the good fortune of seeing him live intermittently over the past six months, as I have. (At Glasslands for CMJ, where he ruled, and a few weeks ago in a startlingly intimate 40-person theater near Union Square, where he ruled again, this time as a campy mix of Scott Walker and Patrick Bateman.)" --Stereogum

"On the title track of his debut LP Embracism, Australian howler Kirin J Callinan introduced himself with fight music. His approach to love-themed music sounds every bit as confrontational on his second single, as sharp guitar chords are erratically scraped, mangled, and pitch-shifted throughout "Love Delay" while Callinan belts out lusty lyrics in a throat-shredding howl and personifies fire so he can commune with it. Between the two songs, he establishes an understandable artistic premise, to imply the scraps and conflicts of the schoolyard and the bedroom are triggered by the same animalistic urges." --Pitchfork
