We shared Kite Base's debut track Dadum a couple of weeks ago and were blown away by the fresh approach taken by Savages bassist Ayse Hassan in her new musical escapade with fellow bassist and collaborator, Kendra Frost.
Named after the main starting point found in origami, a kite base is an opening move made with simple folds to generate a firm foundation for creativity. The video for Dadum leads the way for the duo; directed, filmed and edited by illustrator Sam Dunn, it acts as a flowering extension of the artwork which was inspired by listening to Dadum on repeat and Dunn exploring the origins of the groups name. Dunn dots with precision, accompanied by flashes of Kite Base's simplistic and clean line drawn logo, fuzzy overlays and sped-up controlled lines. Then at the end, as the Kite Base stamp flickers out, we're left wanting more.
