INTRODUCING: KITE

Swedish Indie-Electro Duo Share New Track

Swedish indie-electro duo Kite has shared new track ‘Tranås/Stenslanda’. The song combines an adventurous sonic approach with a pop sensibility, and it’s a prime example of their sound, a dark wonderland of droning synthesizers and throbbing beats, full of majestic melodies.

The track comes accompanied by a video directed by Marcus Malmström. Asked about the video, he said: ”Having grown up in a small, rural place myself, I wanted to capture that decade-long wait to get away and start a life for yourself. Those drifting, longing thoughts that become rarer as you get older and in hindsight shaped the person you are today.” 

Based in Stockholm, the duo is composed by singer Nicklas Stenemo, who grew up in the small town of Stenslanda and keyboard player Christian Berg who came from the even smaller town Tranås. After performing with various synth/indie outfits separately, they finally joined forces and started Kite. The opening track of their first EP, ‘Ways to Dance’, was an instant club hit in Sweden.

Their live experience – featuring spectacular lights, breathtaking projections and sometimes cat statues shooting laser beams from their eyes – have gained them a reputation as a great live band. This is how Dagens Nyheter, one of Sweden’s main broadsheets, described one of their shows ”Projected on the dome over our heads are marching skeletons, hummingbirds in slow-motion, bomber aircrafts on a purple sky, lunar craters, the snow-covered peaks of Himalaya, neon shimmering nebulas and a space baby à la Kubrick´s 2001. The Native American dream catcher dangling from Christian Berg´s synthesizers must have been switched to reverse.”

Following last year’s performance at Way Out West Festival and two sold-out shows at The Royal Opera in Stockholm, alongside a 16-piece orchestra, Kite are currently working on new music and gearing up for more live shows later on in the year.
