Swedish Synth Artists Kite Share New Single Produced By Blanck Mass

Swedish synth act Kite are made up of singer Nicklas Stenemo and keyboard player Christian Berg. The pair combine an adventurous nature with pop sensibilities, throbbing beats and an early nineties aesthetic.

Their lean approach to songwriting – a methodology of ‘cut the fat’ results in tight, focussed songs that never outstay their welcome. Produced together with Blanck Mass (Benjamin John Power), new single ‘Teenage Bliss’ has shades of New Order, Chairlift and Superorganism. It conjures up mental images of half-remembered nights out, sweat soaked gigs with friends and the naivety of first experiences.

Teenage Bliss is a crushing ensemble of fine crafted visceral electronica. This synth classic features alluring vocals with uplifting harmonies and a direct beat. Layered electronic textures cascade over this highly addictive and melodic arrangement. It carries a feeling of an 80’s classic yet elements of a bright future feed through.

Speaking of the new single, the band share: “When we started Kite the band F*** Buttons were a big source of inspiration to us. Since then we have been following Benjamin John Powers brilliant music as Blanck Mass. We are now extremely excited to announce that we are working on the production of two new Kite tracks with him.”

The band have brought their projection filled, brain melting visual live show to audiences in Scandinavia, Germany, the US, Canada and China. It sometimes even includes cats shooting laser beams out of their eyes, and when their performing their sold our show’s at Stockholm’s Royal Opera House – a 16-piece orchestra.

Teenage Bliss’  available now.
