The Kite String Tangle – Given The Chance



Introducing The Kite String Tangle (TKST); the experimental solo project of alternative electronic artist and producer, Danny Harley (also the lead singer of electronic act Pigeon).

The TKST project was launched in May 2012 and has started making waves across the pond in Europe and the US.

‘Given The Chance’ starts off slightly melancholy as Harley attempts to persuade a girl to go out with him. The video follows the same theme, showing a brightly lit up girl in a dark world, as seen through Harley’s eyes.

Despite the ambient start, the beat of ‘Given the Chance’ soon picks up (in true Pigeon form) and also appears to feature a sample of ‘Ride on Time’ by Black Box, which is just awesome!

Sounds like: TDeL2, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, The Weeknd, Active Child, Mount Kimbie, Fever Ray, James Blake, Cloud Boat

Soop – Buffalo Buffalo EP


‘Buffalo buffalo’ is the name of the debut EP by Melborne, Australia residents Soop.

Soop started in 2013 when three friends and musicians- Michael Burke (lawyer, lasers, synths and beats), Stacy Gougoulis (vocals) and Mitch Secrett (guitars, beats and mixes), began sending eachother snippets of songs and ideas, progressing to quiet jams in apartments, and resulting in releasing a number of intricate and carefully crafted tunes.

With unique and floral beats combined with cascading synths and reverb-laden guitars, “Buffalo buffalo” is an exploration of electronic indie-pop sound culminating in one epic saxophone solo.

Opening with Ostrich of War- a bundled explosion of tracked vocals, cut up guitar and broken drums, through to the catchy choruses of High High High and Follow the Leader, the EP adventures into thick sonic territory and takes triumphant endings to a new high.

Recorded and mixed by the band in Melbourne, the EP was mastered by Paul Gold (Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear) and is out now, available to purchase here.
