Following up on the November release of their latest single ‘Shiver’, Bristol-based indie-rock four-piece Chasing Kites are pleased to unveil their upcoming single ‘Two Towns’, due for release May 26th 2023.
Starting life in 2016 as the solo project of vocalist Matt Donnelly, Chasing Kites arrived at their full and final lineup in June of 2022, thanks to a series of ‘Band Members Wanted’ advertisements and the miracles of social media. The band have since gone on to be chosen as BBC Bristol’s ‘Big New Sound’ with the release of their recent single ‘Slide’ and have been championed by the likes of Ones To Watch.
With echoes of Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Verve and The 1975, the band intertwine dynamic hooks, 80s synth textures and vivid narratives, capturing reflections on the stories of Donnelly’s youth.
Their upcoming single Two Towns, recorded with Sam Winfield (Amber Run, Bring Me The Horizon) at Studio 91, lyrically explores the end of a relationship brought about due to being separated by distance and the aftermath of an unwanted breakup.
Discussing the inspirations behind the single, vocalist and lyricist Matt Donnelly explains, “Two Towns dives into the frustration of having a relationship taken away from you through no fault of your own. It also explores the period of time immediately after the relationship’s breakdown, when you’re unable to keep your ex partner off your mind even when you’re sleeping.”
Two Towns is due for release May 26th 2023 and will be available on all major platforms.
