RADAR: Kite Club

Indie pop outfit Kite Club is the brainchild of Melbourne frontman, founder and falsettoed creative force for all things grand and melodic: Nicholas Futcher (that's him in the middle with the blonde locks and even blonder trousers). A snapshot preview of Futcher and Kite Club's forthcoming debut full-length Fresh Air for Humans due later this year, the euphoric and effervescent "Jupiter Smiles"is the perfect sunny summer sing-a-long -- cool harmonies, jangle-ific guitars, an insistent keyboard hook and killer backbeat combining for some Aussie retro '80s New Wave/New Romantic splendor.
