Los Angeles’ HIGHLAND KITES Cover RADIOHEAD With A Mesmeric Touch…

‘Fake Plastic Trees’ by HIGHLAND KITES
Original by Radiohead

On my daily search for something special on the Internet I discovered this truly splendid guitar pop/folk trio HIGHLAND KITES based out of Los Angeles and formed in late 2013.
It’s the brainchild of the wonderful singer/songwriter/guitarist Marissa Lamar blessed with a gripping voice. And the first song I heard of this trio and made me silent, instantly was/is a cover of one of Radiohead‘s unforgettable masterstrokes FAKE PLASTIC TREES (from their 1995 breakthrough album The Bends). A truly impressive rendition. Lamar‘s voice is really enchanting and colors the song with a mesmeric touch Thom Yorke would certainly approve. Musically the band’s overall sensitive approach with poetic guitar lines
is delightful. Yes, today I found something special. Here’s the magic…
