Following up two singles that topped the Triple J Unearthed charts from their 2015 EP, LUNATICS, and their wildly popular 2016 single ‘Charlotte’, The Kite Machine are back with another addictive and a blinder of a single.

Like a brick wrapped in silk The Kite Machine’s new ‘Sinister Sound’ takes heavy rock riffs and delivers it with such sweet groove, it’ll be stuck in your head.

Their new single takes cues from The Black Keys and Queens of the Stoneage, the chorus will have you thumping on your steering wheel and (carefully) headbanging in your car. ‘Sinister Sound’ is equal parts rocktastic, thunderous groove and pop hit and will be a new hit in your playlists.

Musically, ‘Sinister Sound‘ is our attempt at making the stompiest, loudest, fuzz-on-the-peaches pop song we could manage.” – Levi Anderson, The Kite Machine
