THE KITE STRING TANGLE ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM + SPLENDOUR COMPETITION
With a sold-out tour in support of his recent single ‘Selfish’ behind him and an upcoming appearance at Splendour In The Grass, today ARIA nominated artist The Kite String Tangle shares new single ‘The Prize’ feat. Bridgette Amofah (Rudimental). The track is accompanied by the news the producer will release his highly anticipated self-titled debut album on July 14th via Exist. Recordings / Warner Music Australia. Written, performed and self-produced, the album is mixed by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Eric J Dubowsky (Flume, Flight Facilities, SAFIA).
The Kite String Tangle album was produced over a three-year period and saw the bedroom producer move his recording process into a studio with live drums, strings, horns and more. With features that include elusive Gold Coast artist and I OH YOU signee Montgomery, The Kite String Tangle describes his debut as “a process of discovery. It really was a long road to get this thing to where it needed to be in my head and I learnt a great deal about my songwriting and production, but more poignantly, about myself and those around me.”
The triple threat producer, vocalist and songwriter made waves with his single ‘Given The Chance’, a track that reached Gold status in Australia, ‘Arcadia’, ‘Stone Cold’ and ‘What If’ followed; tracks that by now – are ubiquitous to the Australian music landscape. Alongside sold-out national headline shows, celebrated festival appearances including Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival and Groovin the Moo, The Kite String Tangle landed in the Top 20 of both the 2013 & 2014 triple j Hottest 100’s. His West Coast support slot on the RUFUS tour followed on from a series of sold out shows on his co-headline tour with Dustin Tebbutt to celebrate their collaborative Illuminate EP.
With a debut album on the way and festival spots lined up, this year is set to be the biggest yet for arguably one of Australia’s most talented emotive electronic artists.
