Kite Base, a two-piece band consisting of bass guitarists Ayse Hassan (Savages) and Kendra Frost, have announced details of a headline U.K. tour in June. The band previously announced a run of shows supporting Thor & Friends (Thor Harris of Swans / Shearwater) and an appearance at this year’s Field Day Festival.
The band also recently played a sold-out show at London’s Kamio, bagged a double-page spread in Loud & Quiet and picked their top-5 albums for London in Stereo.
They recently released ‘Transition’, which was accompanied by a visually stunning video based around live footage taken from the band’s sold-out show at London’s Electrowerkz at the end of last year and directed by Simone Pellegrini & Giorgio Testi. The track is a taster from their forthcoming debut album, Latent Whispers, which is released on Friday May 26th 2017.
“There are traces of everything from Stereolab’s urban sophistication to PJ Harvey’s ferocity to Radiohead’s artful darkness to Sufjan Stevens’ childlike singsong in this music” – Stereogum
Kite Base play The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on Tues 13th June 2017. Tickets available here.
