Very few artists have been able to combine an adventurous sonic approach and a pop sensibility as well as Kite. They've created a dark wonderland of droning synthesizers and throbbing beats, full of majestic melodies. The band was formed in 2008 by singer Nicklas Stenemo, who grew up in the small town Växjö and keyboard player Christian Berg who came from the even smaller town Tranås.
By putting out EP's instead of albums, Kite have developed an ”all killer, no filler” approach to music making. After six EP's their repertoire contains so many great songs that it's becoming increasingly difficult to compile concert setlists that satisfy all the fans. But Kite are less interested in performing their hits than in creating a sense of astonishment.
With spectacular lights, breathtaking projections and sometimes cat statues shooting laser beams from their eyes – Kite´s live show has given them a reputation as one of the best live bands not only in Sweden but in the entire world. Kite has toured extensively, in both the United States, Canada, Germany and China, as well as in Scandinavia.
Right now they are writing and producing new music and their dark dreamscapes will undoubtedly enthrall thousands of new listeners.
