White Kite - Curtain Call

‘Curtain Call’ is a perfect accompaniment to nervous evenings and battles of the mind.

White Kite’s debut single ‘Swans’ was a runaway train, “a barrage of noodling synths and thudding synthetic drums”. It introduced the London quartet as a bright and pop-leaning prospect. Its follow-up ‘Curtain Call’ takes the introduction of ‘Swans’ and sends it into the depths of the night. Soulful yet cautious vocals fly above blackened synths that feel so vicious they could declare war by themselves. By the time a gritty, almost post-rock guitar solo worms its way into the fold, White Kite are wrapped up in a vicious, hellbound journey. “Don’t wanna put on a show anymore”, frontman Louis Shadwick croons, and the insular, creeping world he inhabits on ‘Curtain Call’ is a perfect accompaniment to nervous evenings and battles of the mind.
