Introducing... Kite Base

Story by Chad Kamenshine August 11th, 2017

Driven by the rhythmic bass lines of Savages' Ayse Hassan and Kendra Frost and paired with Alan the drum machine, Kite Base are here to take you down an aural rabbit hole. On the surface, their sound is minimal and spacious but as they start to reveal themselves you're slowly pushed into the complex and layered underbelly of their world.
