The Rebel Kites are a London-based act that make as the band describes it, cinematic folk music. “Atlas Sky”, previewed from the band’s “The Witnessing” EP, very much fits that cinematic folk description with its sweeping symphonics and mastery of ebb and tension of mood (Think Pink Floyd meeting Townes Van Zant outside a rusted-out barn on the Moon). Rebel Kites’ “The Witnessing” EP is out now.
