A WINDOW ON OTHER LIVES
THE intrigue that comes with watching other people live their everyday lives will be brought to life at The Paper Kites’ coming national tour.
It follows the theme of their Midnight video trilogy, which accompanies three songs from their latest album twelvefour.
Electric Indigo, Revelator Eyes and the recently released Renegade portray late-night stories of different people in different cities but all set between midnight and 4am.
“I don’t know if you’ve ever sat across the street and thought ‘Oh I wonder what’s happening in there’,” lead singer Sam Bentley asked.
“The show is a little bit of this voyeur experience.
“It’s called Midnight and we combine a projection element with our normal stage show. We’re setting it in front of an apartment building, so we’ve got four windows that are made to look like they’ve been ripped out of an apartment building… and we’re set up underneath.
“During the set, there are four separate stories done through projections on to the windows, so it makes the audience feel like they’re watching through people’s windows.”
