Austin-based band Boy + Kite will follow-up its 2011 debut album with a new EP, scheduled to hit digital retailers next week. Titled “We Can Go Anywhere We Want,” the new EP (available on March 19th) was recorded by Nada Surf keyboardist Louie Lino.
The band will play songs from “We Can Go Anywhere We Want” during South By Southwest this week (see above for details) including the first single “Fall,” which has just been premiered by Diffuser.fm. Boy + Kite will also be blogging from South By Southwest for the popular music discovery website.
Of the new song, band member Darvin Jones says “‘Fall’ describes what it would be like to know that you’re dying and to try and shape the attitude you’d have on the way out. Reality lies in our minds, so why not choose to make the world seem really small in the face of death?”
“Take Sonic Youth’s dynamic shifts and sexy sensibility. Add what could be said to approach a fetish: Electric axes digging hard into blues-based riffs, then throw in some Pixies/Cure love,” said My Old Kentucky Blog about Go Fly, Boy + Kite’s debut album. The dueling musical personalities of vocalist/guitarist Beth Puorro and the aforementioned Jones do indeed remind of the Gordon / Moore and Deal / Francis dynamic, a tried and true formula that works once again within Boy + Kite.
The new Boy + Kite EP “We Can Go Anywhere We Want,” will be released on March 19th. Boy + Kite will perform at South By Southwest at the Stubhub Live! Presents showcase at The Old School in Austin at 1230AM on March 13th and at an official showcase presented by Audible Treats and The Vinyl District on March 15th at the Parish Underground in Austin at 825PM.
