Red Kite Confirm September London Show, Share New Single Take Care Of Your Own

Jon Stickler 17 July 2017

Red Kite will play the Islington on September 26.

The London art-rock sextet, fronted by former Cooper Temple Clause guitarist Dan Fisher, have also shared the video for Take Care of Your Own, which is taken from their forthcoming second album, due in November.

The video was crafted using 1,600 different shots, filmed on an iPhone over one afternoon in north London. Fisher explained his inspiration behind the song:

"There’s a theme running through a lot of the first part of the new album, and that’s the strange nature of my relationships with my friends, people I’ve known since I was fifteen, and the state of arrested development we live in as adults who have spent their lives trying and failing to make it as musicians.

"This song is about that dynamic, and how we weren’t able to look after one of those friends when they were in a really difficult period of their life. We tried, but we were too close and there was too much history there. We had our own lives, our own problems, and there was just too much time and distance between us all, no matter how close we once were. We all felt that guilt and that uselessness and couldn’t figure out how to make it right.

"I took that situation as the starting point for this video. Originally I was going to use our guitarist as the star, but after I did some test shots with the creepy teddy bear, he just looked so perfect that I decided to use him instead. He’s fleeing from a situation and emotions he can’t deal with or understand. He’s a really fast runner."
