Kite Party Premiere "Halflife" on Stereogum + Ready New Album For May

"Come On Wandering" LP due out May 6th via Animal Style Records
Following their 2011 debut, Baseball SeasonKite Party will release their long awaited sophomore album Come On Wondering on May 6th via Animal Style Records. Today,Stereogum are sharing the LP’s first single, “Halflife,” calling it, “a warm introduction to the Philly band’s dreamy, wondrous music, but it’s also tinged with melodies and vocal inflections that cut with an intense melancholy. On the first listen, the spacey guitar work takes your focus, but pay attention to just how hurt lead singer Russell Edling sounds”.

Kite Party vocalist/guitarist Russell Edling elaborated on “Halflife” sharing, "Why does this feel off?" is a sentiment that pops up in several places throughout Come on Wandering. The song Halflife focuses on how "off" you can feel when you are a 20-something and you still feel like you're sucking your thumb.”

The Philadelphia based quintet has come a long way in the three years since their debut, blending new sounds and ideas into the radiant Come On Wandering at every turn. The record swirls with nuanced indie rock, warm and shimmering shoegaze, delicate brushes with dream pop, and subtle hints of a youth spent listening to punk.

Come On Wandering will be pressed in a variety of vinyl options. Pre-orders are now available HERE.
