Up in the Air
Kite are completely out to lunch. They are under the notion that the world cannot do without a band that sounds like The Police, UB40 and Crowded House all rolled into one, and have chosen the unlikeliest of launch pads for their musical moonshot. They can also demonstrate that climbing coconut trees is for trained rock musicians ONLY...and are reaching for the stars... even if they only turn up with coconuts. Debut album 'Up In The Air' saw Kite working with the likes of Jeremy Harding (Sean Paul producer/manager) on their song 'Nice To Finally Meet You'. Sadly, it appears to have been Jeremy's last foray into rock. Pity. He was so nice in the studio. Nice shoes too. Recent events include Kite song 'Firefly' featuring on US TV series Ghost Whisperer (with the 'fwaaaarrrr' Jennifer Love-Hewitt), and a local Barbadian department store ad. It has been widely agreed that the department store ad was the real coup d'Etat, such is the conservative nature of the island. Kite have finished their follow-up album and it is to be released in April 2007, though the tunes will be streaming on their MySpace profile and band website sooner...
