What would happen if Grizzly Bear left their usual habitat and took a trip to the North Pole? Surrounded by the cold and ice, the end product would most likely sound like East London four-piece White Kite’s debut single ‘Swans’.

Shrouded in mystery (but then who isn’t these days) the four-piece have hit the scene in fine style with this icy, sensual slice of experimental electronica. Guitars that shimmer like the moon on a glacier and cooler than cool drum machine loops, combined with stunning harmonies, pull together to create a silky, late night dream.

They say first impressions are everything. When it comes to White Kite, they’ve sure as hell made a great one. Keep your eyes and ears peeled.
