cantautorato gemellato scozzese-genovese
info: Tom è stato a lungo il leader dei Kettle of Kites, ma da quando si è trasferito a Genova ha fatto numerose uscite soliste o ben accompagnate, sempre acustiche e sempre premiate da un pubblico felice e contento. Torna all’Altrove dopo il successo dello scorso anno. Accorrete perchè è bravissimo.
press: “A big cheer erupts as Kettle of Kites take the stage and frontman Tom Stearn retorts “we haven’t played anything yet, we might be shite”. They’re not though, their folk pop with sunny overtones could easily sit with the best Glasgow bands in this genre, and the introduction of brass only pushes them a touch more to the pop end of the scale, which can only be positive for the band in general. The crowd seems pleased and why shouldn’t they be? The shoe certainly fits for moment in the for the Glasgow scene, yes there are several Glasgow bands who share similarities but these guys have as much a right as any to reach the top of this scene. Clear, well-delivered vocals on top bleak folk backdrops or charming pop, it’s hard to find fault. A few musical quirks bring taking points to the set, the rare foray into noisier surroundings add a quite refreshing element from the norm and hints of Paul Simon inspiration prove these guys aren’t short on ideas. However, it is the standard folk pop songs that stand out in terms of quality.” Ravechild
