The Kite String Tangle - Alternate Mode Artist

The anticipation we now see around The Kite String Tangle (Danny Harley) speaks volumes for the incredible rise his career has taken, and also the ascending trajectory it will undoubtedly continue on.

He's enjoyed a great run since the release of his breakthrough single ‘Given The Chance’ in 2013 which hit Gold sales in Australia. Striking, delicate electro-pop tunes filled his acclaimed debut EP ‘Vessel’ including standouts ‘Arcadia’ (over 8 million streams on Spotify) and ‘Stone Cold’; while his popularity was affirmed with an ARIA nomination and a spot in the Top 20 of both the 2013 & 2014 Triple j Hottest 100’s. Earlier this year he teamed up with rising Australian singer/songwriter Dustin Tebbutt to collaborate on the entrancing single ‘Illuminate’ and a special limited edition 10'' vinyl EP.

He’s grown as a live performer too, with three sold-out national tours slotted in between appearances at Falls Festival, Groovin the Moo Tour and Splendour In The Grass, seeing fans flock in their thousands to experience his captivating live show. The last 18 months also saw him take the US by storm, playing a number of showcases at the highly-regarded SxSW and CMJ in 2014, ahead of a guest appearance at the star-studded Coachella Festival. More recently, Danny was selected to perform at Japan’s Taico Club Festival (Nagano), before stepping it up yet another level with sold out shows at Sydney’s Metro Theatre, Melbourne’s 170 Russell and Brisbane’s The Triffid on his co-headline tour with Dustin Tebbutt celebrating their collaborative ‘Illuminate’ EP.

Never one to stand still, Danny then returned to the US in July 2015 with highly praised headline shows and festival appearances including Seattle’s Capital Hill Block Party, setting a strong foundation to translate his incredible domestic success to a worldwide audience.
