After we got back from tour we were hit with a wave of inspiration and went back into the studio with our favorite producer to record 7 new songs.


We don’t know when we’re going to release any of these yet – since we just released “All we left behind”, but but the new material will be mixed into our live sets. (We may release a couple singles all the sudden)… These songs are definitely recognizable as Highland Kites songs but they have a bit of a different spin to them. I’m excited for our friends and fans to hear them.


On that note, we are back to doing tons of live shows. We’ll be doing local shows and mini tours our the Pacific NW. We’ll be posting all our show updates here on and on all our social media. Our next show is on the 26th of Sept at Trip in Santa Monica. You can confirm here.


Bye for now. 🙂

Bands we love

If you are craving some beautiful and heartfelt indie music stop what you are doing and listen to AKW. I don’t know about you but I feel like some music has gotten to be too produced – too perfect – and has lost the much needed emotion and vulnerability a good song has to have in order to really pull at your heartstrings. AKW keeps the perfect blend of beautiful production, while still holding onto every bit of integrity and raw emotion in their songwriting and delivery. Every song from this band is heartfelt, real and beautiful. They just released an EP – “To be Alive”. So, take my word for it and go check them out.

We'd love to hear from you!
