“TBK's new full-length Isolation (Clairecords) just shot their sunny harmonies and creative arrangements through the stratosphere. It's one of the best albums we've encountered this year” – Chris Conti, Providence Phoenix

There’s big noise emanating from our nation’s smallest state courtesy of The Brother Kite and their third album, Isolation. Released Sept. 28, it’s an auspicious progression from the Providence fivesome’s last album, Waiting for the Time to be Right, which earned them a 7.6 from Pitchfork and showcase appearances at SXSW and CMJ. Gigs with the likes of Frightened Rabbit, the French Kicks and the Danielson Famile followed, as did loads of airplay on college and community radio stations far and wide. As Pitchfork’s Joe Tangari raved, “The Brother Kite slip right past the sky on their guitars and into low orbit here, and it's a pleasure to join them there.”

Mixed by Thom Monahan (Pernice Bros, Matt Pond PA, J. Mascis and The Fog), Isolation expands upon The Brother Kite’s confident energy and penchant for sun-ripened Beach Boys harmonies and shoegazy guitar work. Make no mistake that, as the band intones, the scene is changing all around you.
