Electropunk Duo Kite Base Aren’t Careless About ‘Latent Whispers’
Kite Base, a band composed of Kendra Frost and Savages' bassist Ayse Hassan, blend post-punk and electronics in wonderfully haunting ways. The duo is set to release their debut full-length, Latent Whispers, this Friday, May 26, and today you can hear the record in full. The duo employs a wide breadth of sounds and effects, kickoff song "Transition" offering a rising synth hook, drums pounding in the background under Hassan's voice. Lightning-quick percussion strikes on "Erase," providing an unsettling crash beneath the smooth bass. The band warps post-punk, extracting its synthier elements and crafting them into something new, thoughtful and exciting.
