“The band is delightful. They write good songs and have excellent voices.” – Tony Visconti (producer of David Bowie, T Rex, The Stranglers, Morrisey)

“best unsigned band. …their songs have all the warmth and familiarity of old leather..” – London Evening Standard
– London Lite

“A fantastic slab of good time indie rock and roll… Be diggin’ that. If not, there’s something wrong with you I reckon.” – Xfm Scotland – Jim Gellatly

“A really, really good sound, and so upbeat. It’s what we need.” – BBC Merseyside live session – Claire Hamilton

“…we reckon they’ve really got something. Well written tunes, an infectious vibe and spirited performance make a great listen.” – BBC Stoke live session – Dave Hamer

“With their rockabilly-come-skiffle sound, Chester’s Loose Kites have quickly built up a reputation for top tunes and quality musicianship…” – The Skinny – Graeme Blaikie

“They make a rootsy noise, the stage presence of the Wonderstuff with the exuberance of The Saw Doctors. A jolly, enthusiastic, able outfit who I can imagine would do particularly well at a festival.” – Silicone Fish – Mandy Williams

“The best thing since The Levellers.” – Irene Finney – Dee 106.3FM

Having released their debut album and animation for the single ‘radiation vibe’, the loose kites constantly tour the UK. Playing regular gigs in major cities maintains a presence and has helped develop an ever-growing fanbase. These gigs include residencies in Liverpool, Rochdale and Sheffield.
