The Kite String Tangle
Danny Harley, triple threat electronic producer, vocalist and songwriter, brought a much needed sophistication to electronic music under his production moniker of The Kite String Tangle, that now sees him – like a rare few before him – oft imitated, never duplicated.
The Kite String Tangle released his debut self titled album in July 2017. He spent the better part of three years crafting the highly-anticipated record taking all the time necessary to make sure it was right – including the ambitious step of marrying the electronic and analogue worlds by recording live strings, horns and more. The now ARIA nominated album hit #1 on the iTunes electronic Album Chart and debuted in the top 10 of the iTunes Album Chart. Singles ‘Selfish’, ‘The Prize (feat. Bridgette Amofah)’ and ‘This Thing We Got’ have all been triple j and live favourites.
The Kite String Tangle has a reputation of a not to be missed live act. He’s performed at Splendour In the Grass, Falls Festival, Groovin The Moo and toured Australia numerous times, including his completely sold out Selfish single tour in April 2017 and his massive Australian album tour in October 2017. Internationally, he’s appeared at Coachella, SxSW and sold out headline shows across the US, while 2017 saw his South American debut with shows in Brazil, Argentina and Chile (where his album debuted at #5 on the iTunes Album Chart).
Harley originally broke out with critically and commercially adored singles ‘Arcadia’ which was voted at #19 on the 2013 triple j Hottest 100 and Gold certified ‘Given The Chance’ taken from his debut ARIA Nominated EP ‘Vessel’.
With a brand of electronica focusing on the difficult-to-extract human element, The Kite String Tangle from day one has been releasing music that makes people feel real human emotion. With songs as poignant now as they were upon release.
