Geelong locals The Kite Machine are a funky bunch, brimming with energy and panache and are about to set the proverbial cat amongst the pigeons with their new single ‘Sinister Sound’.
Like a brick wrapped in silk, ‘Sinister Sound’ takes heavy rock riffage and delivers it with such a sweet groove that you’ll gladly take the brain hemorrhage for it.
Sending vibes similar to Muse, The Black Keys and Queens of The Stone Age, the verses expertly build up the anticipation to the chorus which pays off in spades and will have you reaching for the gear stick to kick into overdrive.
That’s not all though. Going all out, the solo rips whatever brain cells you have left and takes the song into the stratosphere. It’s fuzzy, it’s loud and god damn we love it!
While lyrically, the track addresses the struggle of trying to make it in the music business, their video clip is an assault on the senses.
“Standing out in the middle of a field for a whole night in the middle of winter wasn’t a spectacular idea… but we think we got a pretty spectacular result,” vocalist and guitarist Levi laughs.
Check it out below.
Having previously shared stages with Pierce Brothers, Kingswood and Stonefield the band are no strangers to taking on big stages and big crowds. Alongside their fresh track, they’ve announced their ‘Sinister Sound’ headline tour.
Catch them at The Workers Club Geelong on September 1 for an 18+ show and an U18’s matinee show.
