From the Kites of San Quentin

Enter Manchester’s From the Kites of San Quentin, a dark ambient mish-mash of trip-hop and dance beats with the most spine-tinglingly brilliant vocals you’ve heard for a very long time. Right now they really are this city’s best kept secret- put in two words, they are brilliant.

On the record, it’s music that will liquefy your brain; live, even the most awkward of indie kids start to shuffle their feet towards a dance. It’s so vibrant and exotic that jaws visibly drop at first contact, whilst prolonged exposure will lead to loss of motor functions and, eventually, to your mind being blown. Like, forever. Once you listen to this band, all other electronic music will be dull by comparison. You have been warned. – High Voltage

Cyril Snear

One of Manchester’s most criminally overlooked bands.

“A blurred vision of what you might have if The Mars Volta, Mogwai and Radiohead were genetically modified into one Mancunian monster.” – Silent Radio
