I’ve had this Canadian guy hanging around on my Twitter for a while and when he sent out a plea for some press coverage, I thought I should step up to the plate. A cheeky electro-pop sound, a voice that just melts and let’s be honest, a very pretty face are all perfect starting ingredients for a modern day, edgy pop star. With a lot of internet support already, Jake who performs under the alias Something Like Kites, managed to give me a quick Q&A.

Owl City and Ed Sheeran.
Which genre would you put your music into?
