Brisbane’s own Kite String Tangle has just shared exciting new single “The Prize”, the second taster for his forthcoming debut album, which is schedule to drop on July 14. “The Prize” is an energetic slice of euphoric electronica with pulsing electro beats, spacious synths and emotionally charged guest vocals courtesy of Bridgette Amofah of Rudimental.
Talking about this new song, TKST explains that it “explores the dynamic between two lovers who can feel the spark getting dimmer and are powerless to change it. It was actually the first track I wrote for the record and initially it started out as a remix for another artist. I wrote another 20 or 30 songs after this but kept coming back to it as a personal favourite. Bridgette’s vocal added the intensity that I always strive for in my tracks.”
During the writing & recording of his debut album, TKST began experimenting with live instruments including drums, strings and horns. He partnered up with Bridgette Amofah and Montgomery on two of the album’s tracks to add extra flavour and provide contrast to his own vocals which dominate the record.

The Kite String Tangle is the solo project of Brisbane-based electronic artist Danny Harley. In less than a year, the success of his first official release, “Given the Chance”, catapulted the young singer/songwriter/producer’s project to heights even he could not have anticipated. With two sold-out Australian tours, showcases at SxSW and a guest appearance at the star-studded Coachella Festival, Harley has had a pretty hectic schedule but he still managed to put the finishing touches on his debut record, with Vessel making good on all his early promises. The first single taken from the 6-track EP is “Arcadia”. Listen below!
The song displays Harley’s ability to produce delicate electro-pop, which explores his own feelings of nostalgia and introspection in a way that will reach all music lovers. The rest of the EP flows effortlessly from the start, with each track a carefully crafted gem in its own right.
If you like what you hear, here is a little bonus in the shape of non-EP track “Commotion”. Released back in 2012, this song is definitely a keeper. Enjoy!
