Bio

The story begins as it so often does, when 2 groups of kids from out west met up at a party in Montreal and discovered they were all independently doing similar music and found common ground in their love for 303s and reverb . Diallo and Fitzmaurice are old high school friends whom have been making music for years but had lately been feeling like some pieces of the puzzle were missing. Slipp and Haythornthwaite on the other hand formed a friendship over work, similar music tastes and many bottles of wine. Eventually, a recording project began and a musical duo was created. When they all finally met up that fateful night, both pairs felt as though they were looking into mirrors with extremely different looking people on the other side.

Night Of Kites combine dark haunting melodies and harmonies with richly layered pop sensibilities. To achieve this sound their tool box includes a banjo, synths, guitars, a 303, a glock and four sets of vocal chords! The band’s combination of hot beats, a twanged out telecaster and loafers controlling loops create the perfect soundtrack for a documentary about a foot tapping, hopelessly romantic Transylvanian castle janitor. Night of Kites invites all janitors and zombies to groove.... and hopes to revive even the weakest of all musical heartbeats.

Night of Kites has just began recording their first EP, playing shows around the Montreal area (including a stopover in the Laurentians for Duckstock 2009), and long walks in the park.
