The Kite Machine with Zuma + Twisted Willows (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

Like a brick wrapped in silk THE KITE MACHINE’s new ‘Sinister Sound’ takes heavy rock riffage and delivers it with such a sweet groove that you’ll gladly take the brain haemorrhage for it.

The verses are gooey and sticky like a kids lolly pop, expertly building up the anticipation to the chorus which pays off in spades. Taking cues from The Black Keys and Queens of the Stoneage the chorus will have you reaching for the gear stick to kick into overdrive. Then just when you thought you’d heard all there was, the solo rips whatever brain cells you have left and takes the song into the stratosphere. Keep a close ear to this one, cause Muse will no doubt be stealing it for their next hit. ‘Sinister Sound’ is equal parts rocktastic, thunderous groove and pop hit and will be on your stereo mixtape for a long time to come.

“Lyrically, ‘Sinister Sound’ addresses the struggle of trying to make it in the music business. Musically it’s our attempt at making the stompiest, loudest, fuzz-on-the-peaches pop song we could manage… to make it in the music business.” - Levi Anderson, The Kite Machine

“Utterly addictive… the whole thing is hardly tame.“ - The Ripe “The band have developed a nasty habit of making what the people want.” - Music Feeds Their 2015 EP, ‘LUNATICS’, had two singles top the Triple J unearthed charts marking the beginning of their astronomical rise on the Aussie music scene. Their 2016 single ‘Charlotte’ has topped over 300k streams on Spotify and fans are at fever pitch with the news of new material. Signing to 123 booking agency the band is taking their new single ‘Sinister Sound’ on the road giving fans the first taste of their debut LP due for release later this year.
