Music review: The Kite String Tangle

kite string tangle’s Jess Matthews gives a listen to Australian producer Danny Harley:

Got a broken heart? Listening to Given The Chance is probably the musical equivalent of rubbing salt in the wound. Aside from being slightly masochistic though, Given The Chance is charmingly honest, thoughtfully textured and beautifully executed.

Unmistakably nostalgic and reflective, the track sounds slightly like the musical love child of Yothu Yindi, Flume and Autre Ne Veut and I suspect that it might encourage a resurgence of late 90’s pop/rock remixes which I’m not quite sure how I feel about.

The Kite String Tangle is the solo project of Danny Harley from Melbourne who has an extensive background in both traditional composition and electronic production. The combination of layered samples, harmonic vocals and ambient electronica gives it an enchantingly innovative depth.

Pass me the salt please.

You can catch The Kite String Tangle at Groovin The Moo 2014. For full details of the festival and ticket info, head to the Groovin the Moo website.
