Red Kites Short Info

Red Kites music is epic yet intimate, combining emotive lyrics and sweeping melody delivered with a fierce determination. Balancing pop songwriting with raw, celtic-tinged alt-rock, the band’s unrestrained creativity lends a refreshing edge to their take on modern rock music.

The band met and formed in 2010 in Guildford, Surrey, but their roots began in the Highlands of Scotland, where many of the songs were written. Inverness remains the band’s second home, and they frequently return north on tour.

Their self-released debut E.P 'Beat in Time' was released in April 2012 to critical acclaim, and the follow up ‘New Life Ignites’ was released in June 2013. After a year gigging and writing, the band returned with the single, ‘Salt Water’, which was released in December 2014, reaching no.19 in the iTunes rock charts and gaining them BBC 6 Music radio play. Their most recent E.P, ‘Circles’ was released on 1st May 2015, and they were subsequently shortlisted by the Kevin Spacey Foundation for the Kevin Spacey Artists of Choice.
