In case you missed the news, one of our long time Australian favorites, The Kite String Tangle, dropped a brand new mini-album named In A Desperate Moment earlier this month. And by “mini”, I mean… not so mini. In A Desperate Moment is an 11 track escapade brimming with heartfelt feels and a sweet abundance of The Kite String Tangle’s atmospheric ballads, etched dexterously out of chiffon vocals, intricate instrumentals, and ethereal electronica. The producer/singer’s new oeuvre of songs features this moving beauty, All About Her, a wistful longing gem that showcases a bevy of lush instruments ranging from horns to keys to strings. You can stream In A Desperate Moment in full on Soundcloud, here.

There never any doubt in my mind this would be a treat when I found out that Scholar had remixed The Kite String Tangle. In fact, I heard about it last night from a music buddy, and was looking forward to getting a listen since. Lo and behold, the Australian acts released the remix today. Scholar’s rendition of TKST’s Arcadia is exactly the bewitching, effervescent treat that I expected it to be. It’s near impossible for me not to love the texture on the shimmering, futuristic edit.

I knew this would be sublime the moment I saw Australian production duo Hermitude’s name. Plus, it’s a remix of a song from another Australian act I’ve been fond of for quite some time now, The Kite String Tangle, who certainly need more ears on them here on this side of the world. Hermitude remixes TKST’s latest tune, Stone Cold, which features Tiana Khasi. Their version of the song is a finely balanced futuristic edit, leaving a lot of the original’s vocals and allure intact, but creating a smooth but dramatic soundscape out of it. It’s a textured, minimalist Ta-ku meets shimmering, pulsing Flume approach. Hermitude’s remix is part of a 5 track digital remix package that also features remixes by the likes of Kilter and Shy Girls, out December 19th.

Just yesterday, I shared The Kite String Tangle’s latest single, Stone Cold, which features vocals by Australian songstress Tiana Khasi. While I was doing so, I was already looking forward to sharing this remix of it the next day. I bring you the dope AMTRAC remix! The Kentucky producer molds it into a raw and satisfying deep house jam. The original is off TKST’s debut EP Vessel.

I’m not too sure how I missed this important announcement late last month, but Stone Cold, featuring Tiana Khasi, is The Kite String Tangle’s latest single off their debut EP Vessel. It’s another spectacular specimen of atmospheric electronic music from the Australian act who first caught me in their webs with Given The Chance. Soulful vocals and a weightless, tropical airiness punctuate the beautiful ballad. Stay tuned for a superb remix by AMTRAC soon.

Denver producer Illenium, aka Nicholas Miller, just placed himself squarely on my radar as a huge blip with his sparkling, breathtaking remix of British duo Wonder Wonder’s (now Oh Wonder’s)intimate gem Shark. His melodic dubstep remix retains the coziness and tender charm of the song, but it flies and glides with such cathartic electronic atmosphere and weightlessness. Upon further investigation, the San Francisco native (woo hoo!) also dropped an amazing chill trap vibing remix of The Kite String Tangle’s Given The Chance recently, which you can find below. On top of that, he released a sick original named Chosen You earlier this month, a future bass and trap listen that’s far more dark and blistering and blustery. Like I told myself earlier today, this guy’s good.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting for new material to surface from Australian electronic act The Kite String Tangle. It may have only been months, but I swear that time stood still in the interim. I’ve been a huge fan ever since I heard Given The Chance a year ago, which reminded me of a more atmospheric and electronic Bastille. Big thanks to Mr. Suicide Sheep for premiering this new tune, Words, several days ago. As expected, it’s a slow burning, poignant beauty with some very cinematic outbursts of emotional sound. TKST does ambient, moving electronic music so well. I can’t wait for them to pick up more in the states, so I can catch them live. If you, by some HUGE oversight, missed Given The Chance, here’s that chance… listen below.

Ever since I heard The Kite String Tangle’s Given The Chance a year ago, I’ve been staunchly on the Brisbane, Australia act’s boat. In fact, I was incredibly excited to catch him as a support act in San Francisco awhile ago, and was madly disappointed when he had to cancel. TKST has been taking his fine time crossing to this side of the world, but finally, his debut EP, Vessel, is getting a North American release on August 12! Album opener and lead single Arcadia, with its sweeping, smooth electronic pop qualities, received the music video treatment this week. Watch the clip below, then listen to fantastic Given The Chance with me again (psst, it’ll be on the EP, too). Oh, what a tune…
