Bio

Basil's Kite are an experimental punk/metal band comprised of 3 members spanning from Wollongong to Katoomba. With 2013's Technicolour Fuckfest EP and 2015's Celestial Shitshow EP behind them, they are approaching a debut album with their new single, and live favourite, Baby. They describe it as: "a song for the breaking point we all have, when adulting gets too hard. When the only exit out of this life is the entry in".

Firmly tongue in cheek, Basil's Kite has become a staple of the Australian experimental rock scene, with significant DIY touring taking them extensively up and down the east coast.

Nobody puts Basil in the corner. Mainly because they're full on hectic units and can't be left unsupervised or near an open flame.
