KRINGER RECORDS IS SET TO RELEASE KI:THEORY’S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED KITTY HAWK ON OCTOBER 29, 2013.
Richmond, Virginia’s Ki:Theory aka Joel Burleson delivers heavy hitting and dynamic new release, KITTY HAWK, on October 29, 2013.
Ki:Theory (pronounced "Key" Theory) is full throttle on title track, “KITTY HAWK” with its massive, lurching hooks and rock elements. Licensed for EA Sports’ FIFA 14 trailer, which generated six million views, “KITTY HAWK” is as infectious as it gets. “Holiday Heart” veers into dreamy melodies while still maintaining a hook-centered foundation. There are quieter moments, too. For the hypnotic “I Wanna Run” and “Needles,” Burleson recruited his friend Maura Davis of Denali (Jade Tree) to bring an ethereal, feminine quality to the recordings.
Ki:Theory’s reputation for energetic remixes with an indie/alternative edge led to commissioned remixes for Daft Punk for the Tron: R3C0NF1GUR3D soundtrack, Queens of the Stone Age, Cypress Hill, UNKLE, Rob Zombie and Kings of Leon.
A classically trained singer, Burleson approaches music as a songwriter first, working out riffs and chord progressions on acoustic guitar and piano before taking them into his studio for digital renderings. The result is a transcendent mix of low-res electronics and arena-ready hooks that sound deceptively effortless.
Recreating these multi-limbed songs in a live setting is what sets Ki:Theory apart. Performing with a live drummer, Burleson moves from sampler to keyboard to guitar to just grabbing the mic and stepping out front to engage the audience like a possessed shaman. Ki:Theory combines the raw energy of a rock concert with the multi-sensory experience of an electronic set.
KITTY HAWK will be available October 29th via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all digital outlets and for free download at www.kitheory.com.
