NEW SINGLE 25/6/24 (SODEH Records)

Desert Kites are an alternative two-piece rock band from Dundee. Their songs are heavily influenced by 90s grunge and hard rock, but there is a dash of shoegaze and a definite nod to classic and prog rock along the way. Their songs reflect life around them. Sometimes angry, sometimes sad, sometimes indifferent always poetic. They prefer imagery over narrative, creating lyrical montages that provide alternative views of the human experience, all wrapped up in solid melodic structures.

By the end of 2023 Desert Kites had drawn a line under the first chapter of their evolution with the release of their EP ‘All You Want Is More’ which featured the eponymously titled track as well as 3 other singles; ‘Restless Mind’‘Something Dark’ and ‘Sorry Ass’. These releases gave the band a platform and increased visibility as the songs were streamed and played on the radio across the globe in their thousands. The band caught the attention of SODEH Records and signed a digital distribution deal with with them this year. Their first single release, ‘Black & White’, via the Canadian label, is currently out performing all previous releases and is looking very likely to be their most successful to-date!

“Everybody loves a holiday. Even better, a stolen holiday taken when you shouldn’t. Like Ferris Bueller taking a day off when everyone else is at work. Our song ‘Holiday’ is about exactly that. A more upbeat tempo song built around a solid guitar riff, reminiscent of Van Halen, with a more Foo Fighters chorus. Holiday is a reminder to enjoy the good life while you can. To quote Ferris Bueller: ‘Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t look around once in a while, you’ll miss it’ …Amen to that” – Shaleph O’Neill
