Orah & The Kites release their third single, Inkwell, touching on the loneliness of unrequited love.
Inkwell is an exploration of the torment of loving someone and being used to escape their fears and insecurities, never acting on the love they profess in words. A bridge in the song demands accountability, emphasising the value that words should have in any relationship as the phrase is repeated, “Why do you talk like your words have no meaning”.
Orah & The Kites formed in 2016 by front woman Ntokozo Mzimela alongside best friends Teagyn Gracey and Jaimie De Klerk. In 2018 the band was permanently joined by Tristan De Beer (of Face) and Kieron Brown (of the Bam Bam Brown Project) and in 2019 they were joined by Giovanni Serci (of The Rudimentals) on drums.
The band’s extended team includes Mj Breytenbach (former Southern Wild member) who tracked guitars for Inkwell and videographer Anel Wessels who is responsible for capturing all the behind the scenes footage of the band in studio.
