After reflecting on their extensive catalog of 3 albums, 2 EPs, and a handful of singles, The Brother Kite looked at where they had been. Much of the band’s recorded sound to-date had developed from extensive overdubs, building thick, layered soundscapes in the studio. With their next record, they sought to capture  how The Brother Kite sounded as a live band. The product, recorded in the band’s new Providence mill space studio, is the punchy and energetic fourth album, Model Rocket, featuring songs performed mainly during their Northeast area shows post-2010's Isolation.

In many ways, Model Rocket is a stark departure from The Brother Kite’s previous records - gone are the heady song structures, choirs of overdubbed voices, and thickly reverberated instrumentation. Yet what remains is equally as endearing, never abandoning what makes TBK a great rock band: buoyant melodies composed of heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics, careening over driving bass and drums, and fueled by their signature guitar sound. Like the miniature aircraft that inspired its name, Model Rocket is at once exciting and familiar, a bold new step for a band that has never been satisfied to play it safe.
