With a unique and dynamic eight-piece line up, including members with diverse backgrounds, The Loose Kites represent something different.
With a sound which includes elements of folk, pop, rock and more, the band relies not only on the staples of voice, guitar, bass and drums, but also brass, woodwind, strings and keys.
The band has developed and adapted new elements into its core since being formed five years ago.
After the release of their self-titled debut back in 2009, the band quickly picked up gigs, radio and an endorsement with the highly acclaimed Farida guitar company, alongside Oasis, Maximo Park, The Levellers and The Wombats.
Now the Kites are moving forward with their new album Of Bricks And Brambles. A marked progression from their debut, the album shows that the band are not afraid of expressing themselves in a variety of musical settings.
Taking inspiration from local life on the terraced streets where they grew up, the album is accompanied by a range of exciting and witty videos which will be used to promote forthcoming singles.
With an enviable live record, including headlining national festivals, the band’s shows have become legendary in their home area. Most recently rocking Telford’s Warehouse in Chester, the band are set for select UK and international dates in 2014.
They return to Telford’s on Saturday, April 25. Free entry before 9pm, £4 thereafter. Call 01244 390 090 or visit www.telfordswarehouse.com .<p/>
