Alain Zane, the Los Angeles duo consisting of singer, multi-instrumentalist Cat Colbert and producer/ multi-instrumentalist Ethan Browne, has released a music video for the recent single “Kite.” The track is off their debut album Right Before Your Eyes, which arrives on September 23rd, 2022 via Spinside Records. They previously released the single “Wunuvakine”.

Ethan Browne comments on the single:

‘Kites’ are the slang term for messages that are sent in prison through non-conventional means. They are communications that are not for prying eyes; Confidential information between inmates and or someone in the outside world. The writer of this ‘Kite’ describes what got them into the situation and the trials and tribulations of life in the penitentiary. The title ‘Kite’ also represents a flight beyond the walls of incarceration; A mental escape from separation and confinement.

The high pitched and constant string is reminiscent of ‘Everybody Loves The Sunshine’ by Roy Ayers. Kevin McCormick drops a funky bass line, and the piece is tied together with a traditional ‘Boom Bap’ drum beat.
