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.
Tickets for their headline shows go on pre-sale via the band’s website from 9am Wednesday 5th April and general sale on Friday 7th April.
The band 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. The 9-track album can be ordered now via Pledge Music.
Recent praise for Kite Base:
“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
“Undoubtedly as dark and rhythmically focussed as Savages, the project utilises these influences in a quite distinct fashion” Clash
“Dadum is a promising first move, a mix of post-punk intrigue and pop grace” The Guardian
