about

On their reflective second album, The Bank Holidays opt for autumnal hues in place of their usual summery sparkle. Sail Becomes a Kite is a surprising left-turn for the captivating Western Australian four-piece, whose previous output has been exemplified by a giddy joyousness. Still present however, among the moodier, more filmic atmosphere is the band's indisputable grasp of melody and compelling songwriting. This time 'round though, the sun has set, the embers have been gently stoked and the reverb has been spread thick. Nylon strings are gently plucked and surf guitars drift by menacingly in the distance. Sail Becomes a Kite is the sound of The Bank Holidays at their tender best; their brilliant command of vocal arrangement has, more than ever, allowed them to cast a shadow across their most panoramic glow of sunshine pop.
