Year of the Kite – Somewhere After Sunday

Year of the Kite is one of my top bands for 2016. Playing a somber, luscious and brooding dreampop, this sextet features crepuscular guitars and delicate vocal harmonies, embedded on top of chiming synths. What makes this group stand out is their somber use of clarinet, which provides a haunting backdrop. Practicing in a very cold, beautiful old church, they currently have three tracks available, and each has joined the playlist at STR including; “Beauty Gone,” “Distance,” and “Wild Blood, Wild Light.”
