The Orange Kyte
Little Cloud Records
The Orange Kyte’s third release, Carousel, is an album to turn up loud and let it transport you to the psych scene of the early ‘80s.
The album has a high level of energy and is powered along by the drums of Dave Mulvaney. It always retains a strong sense of melody. There is a surprising variety in the material, and certainly each song has its own distinctive feel. The songwriting is at its best with “Distractions” or “C.O.P.” and there is more than a touch of The Beatles’ Revolver here.
It’s good to see the group emerging strongly from a small label. They have joined the return to vinyl – arguably the way to listen to music – and are doing a lot for the psych scene.
It might not change the world, but it should break the band free of its local support base to reach a much wider audience. Embrace The Orange Kyte and be ready to be surprised.
