Kite - III
Pop, Synthpop Kite is one of many bands I've heard on compilation albums, but not so much more than that. What I've read and learned of Kite, I actually started to listen to this EP with the preconceived notion that I would not like it.

Kite is pretty far off from the music I tend to like, but there are always exceptions and Kite really took me by surprise. After the first "wtf" I actually found myself liking it. I have no idea how to describe the music, it's some sort of indie electro pop flirting with new wave. What I do know is that this music is full with spirit and sincerity, Kite did not start to do music for just fun sake, they have emotions to share.

"Johnny Boy", "If There's An If In Us", "A Little More Time" all give me great joy and a good feeling. Unfortunately the EP can't hold it up all the way and the last two tracks, "Hexx" and "Castle of Sand" don't manage to withhold my attention.

Still, I was in for a surprise and if you haven't already experienced Kite, you might be too.
