The Kite String Tangle – Words / Debut EP ‘Vessel’ (2014/08/08)

:: A late discovery, but better late then never I guess. Not getting enough of this track!


The Kite String Tangle is the musical moniker of producer, songwriter and vocalist Danny Harley from Brisbane, Australia for his alternative electronic project. Last year’s single’s Given The Chance made him a rising star both locally and abroad, the track nearly 1.5 million plays on Soundcloud, and a few weeks ago he released Vessel, his debut EP.

Vessel was self-released worldwide on August 08, 2014 via The Kite String Tangle Pty Ltd. The set of six tracks is available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy the digital EP from iTunes or order your physical copy of Vessel from The Kite String Tangle’s Store (vinyl edition currently being sold out).

Words is third single and my favourite track from Vessel. The track premiered three days ago via Clash, listen above. You can check out Vessel in full as it’s streaming entirely over at Spotify.

Listen below to the previously released Vessel singles Arcadia and Given Then Chance. The Kite String Tangle will be touring North America in October (partly supporting Kate Boy). He’ll also play two London shows in early November and a string of six Australian concerts around New Year, check out the upcoming dates below.
