7/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 January 2014

Named after the bird of prey that was recently re-introduced to the countryside around Harewood House and inspired by the poetry of Ted Hughes, Red Kite sound like the kind of band that are thinking a little deeper than the usual prattlers. They are led by ex Cooper Temple Clause man Daniel Fisher and ‘The Gathering Storm’ is a nicely slow building opener that promises much. ‘Montreal’ however is overly rousing, it belts along at breakneck speed but it does sound like the songs sole aim is to have the audience sloshing beer around.

‘Streetlights’ is more subdued and better for it with the merest hint of Pixies in the plodding bass lines and discordant guitars. Its all very English and throughout recalls one band and one band only and thats British Sea Power. They have the same almost pastoral outlook to them, lyrical oddities and penchant for bursting into folky singalongs. The title track is a good example of how they get it right. It slowly builds with jagged piano’s and percussion, with a strong vocal that recalls something I just can’t place. There’s plenty to enthuse about if you like rousing English guitar pop done with plenty of gusto.
