MP3: Kite Club – ‘Goodtime Tea Show’
If my blurry photography is anything to go by, I had a rad time watching Kite Club in Sydney last Friday night. This homegrown talent has become quite the cult favourite since his track “Going Swimming” became an unexpected blog hit. And his eccentric live show didn’t disappoint.
Having released his ‘Esoterica’ digital EP earlier this year, he’s already back with a free two-track EP, entitled ‘Goodtime Tea Show’.
The tracks, “La La Melode” and “Very Necessary”, are the perfect expansion on what Kite Club began earlier this year. Big, glorious pageants of sound – bravely bounding towards the sun. There are traces of MGMT and Passion Pit in the kaleidoscopic sparkle and mythic grandeur. Even more so in the perfect pop songwriting.
Grab the tracks from Kite Club’s Bandcamp. And look forward to a full-length in 2011!
Kite Club’s ‘Esoterica’ is out now on iTunes
