As we gaze with optimism into the fresh sheets of paper that are the opening days of 2009, we decided to ask one of 2008's rising acts, Leicester based electro flecked dream pop outfit Kyte, for a overview of a year that included the release of their the album back in February (that's hushed emotional vocals, twitchy electronic sweeps and building instrumentals drew favourable comparisons with Maps, Sigur Ros and Spiritualized). 2008 also saw Kyte constantly touring, major festival appearances, a two-page feature in the NME and the announcement of a big set of tour supports with School of Seven bells at the tail end of last year, so things are shaping up nicely for the band in 09. Considering they're only 21, and they still don't have a proper deal! Kyte vocalist Nick kindly wrote a piece under the heading:
"A year in the Life of Kyte"
