Swedish synth pop duo is starting their second tour in China this week.
Since their formation on 2008, Kite has release a record per year, Kite I, II, III, and yeah, IV, last year.
Kite has been compared to Yazoo, and OMD, a very obvious observation given the sound of the band, but Kite’s melodies are not yet ready to be compared to Yazoo or OMD, they are much more simple, and pink than Yazoo or OMD, though lyric-wise they seem to be closer.
This is a video for their song “Jonny Boy”, one of their top singles.
And to end this immersion into Kite’s sounds, this is a video produced during their last visit to China on 2011, for their song “Step Forward”.
Kite starts their tour today in Shenzen, on Thursday they’ll hit Beijing, and Friday they will arrive to Shanghai to play at YuyinTang along with Rekjaivictim, Party Horse, and Disasteradio, on another concert produced by Mr. Abe Deyo. Then Kite will go to the beach for Zebra’s Jinshan Music fest.
