On May 6, Kite Party will unveil their second full-length album, Come on Wondering. On May 8, they’ll celebrate with a record release show at PhilaMOCA.
The twinkly Philly punkers have waited three years to follow up their popular album, Baseball Season, which features staples like “Arizona” and “Spirit Gum.” However, the band’s fans have been treated to small previews of the upcoming album and it sounds unexpected in the best possible way. Both “Halflife” and “Summery Dream” have a light, atmospheric sound that’s heavy on the psychedelic vibes, less so on the loud guitars and raspy vocals.
Surely, they’ll performance will be a bit different, too, but we’re looking forward to it. Celebrating alongside Kite Party at their record release show will be punkers and/or indie rockers Three Man Cannon, Gunk, Thin Lips and The spirit of the beehive. The all-ages show starts at 7:30 p.m. and admission is $7.
