Bio

Loud, frenetic and obnoxiously on point, The Kite Machine are a prog-inflected groove rock band from Geelong, Victoria (Australia)

Originally formed in 2011 by front man and guitarist, Levi Anderson and subsequently joined by drummer Kane Sherriff and Bassist Liam Brennan the trio have developed an international cult following amongst the indie music scene with tight jams, wry witticisms and manic riffs their signature.

After a number of years riding the wave of acclaim given to previous singles ‘Charlotte’ and ‘Lunatics’ the band recently announced their return from recording studio enforced hibernation with the boot stomping track ‘Sinister Sound’ before embarking on a tour of South East Australia, selling out The Workers Club, The Gasometer and Halls Gap Hotel along the way.

2019 will see the band release their 10 track self titled LP, rewarding fans with an album that showcases the full-spectrum of the talented 3-piece’s unique style which combines explorative lyrics, complex time signatures and fuzzed up hooks packaged effortlessly with the uncontainable energy ever present in their live performances.

Whatever you order, these cutting-edge precisionists deliver.

“The band have developed a nasty habit of making what the people want.” - Mike Hohnen, Music Feeds

“Utterly addictive... the whole thing is hardly tame.“ - Stef Italia, The Ripe

Some stirring rock sounds coming from this group. It's got the feel of some big '90s alt heroes all over it.

What a song. From the acoustic riff all the way through to the climatic finale this is really a rollercoaster of emotion! These guys just get me every time.
