So psyched on this female led indie rock band Kestrels and Kites from Hong Kong! We’ve posted about them before but today is a BIG day because we get to post up a FULL album stream of their brand new record called Higher Than the Mountains.
The quartet are made up of familiar faces from the Hong Kong indie-rock scene and whenever members of various bands come together to create something new, something magical is almost guaranteed to come of that collaboration of creative forces…though the music certainly speaks for itself, it’s Tiffany’s voice to me that really makes this band stand leaps and bounds above the pack. The opening title track she brings back that old Riot Grrl-esque sound from the mid-90’s, but then the track right after entitled Puppy Love there is a whole different much more vulnerable tone she uses that works just as well…then on the third track Captured she gets all nasally on this synth-pop number. She possesses some pretty badass vocal skills that keeps your attention hooked throughout the 7 tracks…
This is a great release for a band that has been working pretty hard – do check them out at these websites:
