Two Sparks, Two Stars

By Kyte

I've been watching out for Kyte for a while now, ever since hearing their wonderful remix of a Wombats track. Now, they follow their February-released mini album with this four track EP, 'Two Sparks, Two Stars.'

At nearly half an hour long, this EP demonstrates what their music is all about, and it's extremely mature for their 21 years.

Throughout the EP there's an obvious electronic twinge that could easily be influenced by Boards of Canada or Amusement Parks on Fire, but whatever their influences, they're definitely working.

First track, 'Eyes Lose Their Fire' is like a bomb of epic magic and mystery exploding in your ears. The other tracks are 'Bridges In The Sky,' 'Lights Outside Here' and a stunning take on Peter Gabriel's 'Solsbury Hill,' all of which showcase their distinctive atmospheric splendour.

I feel that all of this is the grounding for something massive to happen to Kyte, and with a headline UK tour due next year, I reckon their name will soon by on everyone's lips.

They've supported the likes of The Whip, Maps, Olafur Arnalds and even Leeds' iLiKETRAiNS, and also toured internationally in Japan and Europe where they rest-stopped in Poland, Switzerland and Germany.

Kyte are poised to take on the globe and have crafted a beautiful way of doing just that.
