Kettle of Kites: 'Arrows' tour + Jack Cheshire // The Victoria

Doors:

The Victoria

451 Queensbridge Road E8 3AS London

Gig Description

Kettle of Kites launch their new sci-fi inspired album 'Arrows' at London's Victoria in Dalston. Opening the concert is London based musician and songwriter Jack Cheshire.

Kettle of Kites is an indie art rock band. It’s a soaring crescendo and then a simple folk melody. It’s a vast wide open space and then an intimate living room – a geometric maze to find your way through.

Their debut album Loan was formed through humble means – recorded in a dingy, sweaty Italian basement by Scottish frontman/songwriter Tom Stearn and then sent half way across the world to A Pocket Full Of Stones studio in Australia to be mixed. Embarking on the launch of their new sci-fi inspired studio album Arrows, the band’s somewhat dispersed members (Pietro Martinelli, bass – Genoa // Marco Giongrandi, guitar – Brussels // Riccardo Chiaberta, drums – London) combine their unique experience in their respective music scenes to sculpt new worlds, new images, new stories.

Their second album Arrows is inspired by the sci-fi world of the author Isaac Asimov – Sumptuous Fleet Foxes-esque sunsets, roaring Grizzly Bear reverbs and cyclic classical guitar lines, with an undercurrent of minimal electronic drums and synth reminiscent of Radiohead.
