KITES are an indie-rock and roll band formed in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. Influenced by 90s brit-pop and alternative rock and roll, the band was formed in September 2016 when frontman Kane Teal and lead guitarist Harry Wade met as students at Newcastle University and began writing songs while they lived in halls of residence, drummer Michael Dunwell and bassist Lewis McDonald joined the band around a year later, finalising the lineup. Having developed a signature blend of driven chord progressions, soaring melodies and memorable riffs reminiscent of artists such as The Verve, Oasis, Travis and Coldplay, they are the North East’s most promising new talent and confidently mark the prophetic rebirth of rock and roll.
