Kite String TangleWhile few artists debut as self-assuredly as The Kite String Tangle’s Danny Harley, it’s also been a joy watching the ambitious producer evolve from strength to strength.

Since his Hottest 100-ranking debut in 2013, his oeuvre of forward-thinking electronic pop oozing with dancefloor desperation has grown into one of this country’s greatest secret weapons.

On C()D3X, Harley makes percussion the real star, a chattering rhythm section running through every track, with buoyant and hyperactive melodies contrasting against lyrics of doubt and isolation, peaking in the sublime, instrumental GHOST NOISE and culminating in a stunning collaboration with Melbourne’s LANKS. The perfect party record for the upcoming cold season.

C()D3X by The Kite String Tangle is out Friday March 20 via Warner.
