The Kite Machine have just released a moving video for their single ‘Walls”. An excellent relatable song to give us a taste of what is to come in their new album out soon. This young Aussie band are unique, ‘Wall’s is not a generic song but an eclectic mix of genres that kept me entertained right to the end. Check out the music video below. You will not regret it!
Hailing from Geelong, Victoria, The Kite Machine sway from swirly and dreamlike soundscapes to tight grooves and twisted guitar licks on their latest single ‘Walls’. The band proves yet again that they are adept at taking listeners on a wild ride that takes one unexpected musical turn after another.
‘Walls’ is evocative of Smashing Pumpkins and Jeff Buckley in its most tender moments and channels the energy of Alt-Rock heroes Biffy Clyro and Birds of Tokyo at its grandest. Fans will also be pleased to know that the band’s signature tight and well-constructed grooves are still very much intact. This melting pot of varied influences and contrasting sounds is testament to The Kite Machine’s technical aptitude in crafting engaging songs and utilising a broad musical palette.
“‘Walls’ paints the portrait of someone unable to break free of their own self destructive construct, all the while losing touch with what’s real in the world around them.”
– Levi Anderson (guitar/vocals)
With their debut record soon to be released, The Kite Machine are deftly evading expectations and continuing to boldly carve out their own unique sound. ‘Walls’ is the 4th single to be lifted from their debut album which will be released March 15th.
“This album represents The Kite Machine, past, present & future. We feel we’ve ushered in a new flavour of groove with a hard hitting journey of pure rock. It’s been a long time coming but we’re confident it will be worth the wait.”
– Kane Sherriff (drums)
The Kite Machine are Levi Anderson (guitar/vocals), Liam Brennan (bass) and Kane Sherriff (drums).
