ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Boy + Kite’s debut album Go Fly is this year’s perfect summer soundtrack. Led by Jones and Puorro - the cute girl guy dynamic duo which have created a stylized trademark sound that is neither pop, nor rock, its familiar and yet refreshingly new. It will find its way into constant rotation on your player and you will be thankful you found this energetic new band.

Boy + Kite (“Boy Plus Kite”) was formed in 2009 in an unlikely place - a hot tub. Back then, Boy + Kite’s Darvin Jones and Beth Puorro would often sneak into a spa on the outskirts of Austin to swim and pretend to be members of the bourgeoisie. Jones and Puorro realized a mutual connection that would eventually lead to the creation of Go Fly, Boy + Kite’s debut album. Though the pair initially bonded over shared musical interests, they still considered themselves polar opposites, with Jones’s heart based in experimental sounds (B. Fleischman, Ms. John Soda) and Puorro’s leaning towards pop (The Cure, The Pixies). In Boy + Kite, they take advantage of this difference, with lyrics, vocals and melodies developed from the unique combination of Jones and Puorro’s individual viewpoints.

According to Jones, this duality is at the core of the band. “We aren’t trying to tell just one story,” he explains. “We combine our writing, then we cut it up and put it back together to make a new story altogether.” A Go Fly standout track “Alone With A Microphone” was created this way. “We wrote the lyrics independently and then combined them without trying to make it work. We’ve found that the themes will often mesh without having to think about it. It just happens.” Jones continues, “The most important aspect of music for me is to be honest. My inspiration is focused in writing from my gut, not from my head and with Go Fly, we wanted to make a perfect summer soundtrack.”
