The band was formed in 2008 by singer Nicklas Stenemo, who grew up in the small town Stenslanda and keyboard player Christian Berg who came from the even smaller town Tranås.
By putting out EP's instead of an album Kite have developed an ”all killer, no filler” approach to music making. After six EP's their repertoire contains so many great songs that it's becoming increasingly difficult to compile concert setlists that satisfy all the fans. But Kite are less interested in performing their hits than in creating a sense of astonishment.
The extensive touring finally took it ́s toll on Nicklas, who got burned out and needed to hit the brakes. As a result, Kite was completely silent during 2017-2018. Early 2019 they announced their return with a performance at Slaktkyrkan in Stockholm with a post on their social channels - and the venue sold out in a matter of seconds. So they announced both a second and third one with the same result.
Right now they are writing and producing new music together with Benjamin John Power Blanck Mass/Fuck Buttons) and their dark dreamscapes will undoubtedly enthrall thousands of new listeners.
