SXSW: Kite Flying Robot

Chilled-out, electronic tunes

Kite Flying Robot was a striking change in pace from Fiawna Forte, as their mellowed-out, electronic pop songs serenaded the audience. I've talked about how much I like Kite Flying Robot before, and their show is a direct continuation of their album.

Violin, trumpet, keyboards, electronic beats and more went into their songs on record and on stage, and it was a blast to hear. "Solid Gold," the title track from the band's album, was a special highlight. The set didn't include much motion (instrumental work took up the members' time and energy), except for "Color TV," where lead singer Nikolas Thompson descended to the floor and sang the majority of the tune from the audience.

Great songs performed well. That's a good show to me.
