Interviews About Albums: Desert Kites - All You Want Is More (2023)

In this new interview, we sat down with the UK Alternative Rock band Desert Kites to ask some questions about their album "All You Want Is More"

1. What can you say about this new EP/CD?

It’s our first EP. The lead single is new and the other tracks are mostly different versions of previous singles.

2. What is the meaning of the EP/CD name?

All You Want Is More, the title of the EP and the 1st song, pretty much speaks for itself. It’s all about how our culture is about never having enough. The manufacture of desire for what you don’t have.

3. Which one is the composer of the CD/EP?

Shaleph (pronounced Shayleph) the guitarist and singer, writes most of the songs and most of the lyrics. Michael (drums) contributes to arranging the songs and provides lyrics for Shaleph to work with sometimes.

4. If you had to pick one song, which one would you pick?

The title track All You Want is More is the one to focus on BUT, Michael and I both feel that Restless Mind is one of the best songs we’ve written.

5. Is there a special message in this EP/CD? If there is what is it?

Not really, we’re just trying to write the best songs we can, which come from a genuine place of experience and feeling. But there are layers of meanings in all our songs.

6. Are there some lyrics that you’d love to share? 

I’m pretty happy with the first lines of All You Want is More, “When you wake up in the morning, And you don’t like what you see, Do you blame your magic mirror, Or accept reality?” I think that’s all about having a long hard look at yourself and who you are. The ‘Magic Mirror’ has several reference points, mirrors in general, ‘the evil queen’s mirror in Sleeping Beauty’ of course, and technological devices such as the ‘black mirror’ of the TV as well as our ubiquitous smartphone that we constantly look at and reflect who we are every day.

7. Which inspirations have been important for this album? Like friends, family, someone you’d love to thank especially?

We try to draw on life experiences in our songs, and try to express how we feel. Music is about moving beyond the every day and getting at the universal, the things we share in common, but it’s through the everyday that we encounter our human condition so that’s where we start. If music doesn’t make you feel something, then it’s not working, in my opinion.

8. Something to add?

We’ve got some great songs coming along the pipeline. We’re always working on something new and tend to record songs in batches of three. We’re nearly at the point of mixing the next batch and we’re starting to write the next lot already. We aim to release them one by one in the new year.
