The continuing story of Kites


I’ve written several times this year about how much I love London band Kites. This includes their song ‘Brother’ making my 2011 Festive Fifty and interviewing lead singer Matthew.

As seems to be the in thing, they have given away as a free track as a Christmas present. I genuinely think this track ‘Jumped Up Boy In Livery’ is as good as much of the rest of the stuff they have produced – and hopefully they will make a major impact in 2012. I don’t think it’s a Christmas song per se, but that doesn’t matter.

Lead singer Matthew had this to say :’Never before have I had the audacity to pen lyrics that are so indulgently self-pitying – and, for me, that’s saying something. Let’s just say that it has been one of those months. Merry Christmas. Kites gift you ‘This Jumped-Up Boy In Livery.’
