THE ORANGE KYTE – “JUST LIKE LENINGRAD”
[Single] (November 30, 2016)
On the cusp of completing a mammoth release schedule that saw the issue of a single a month in 2016, the Orange Kyte have experienced a psychotropic ascendancy over the last twelve months, appearing at Levitation Vancouver and opening for the likes of Ultimate Painting and Cosmonauts. After relocating from Dublin to Vancouver, Stevie Moonboots took a one-time solo project a step further, teaming up with Robin Schroffel (Strange Things, Fashionism), Dave Mulvaney (Cheap Freaks) and Mat Durie (Summering) to forge a shapeshifting tour de force.
The four-headed, eight-legged Orange Kyte arrives possessing an acute ear for honing hallucinogenically haloed hooks. Together they creatively draw and blend a chemical sonic fusion from a myriad of reference points that step through the yesterdays of pop and beyond, to craft a full-on immersive psychoramic sound that fizzes, fuzzes and fragments within shimmering pools of vividly colourful mind-expanding kaleidoscopia.
