MR.KITO is the musical solo project of Eric Michot, a French multi-instrumentalist, currently living in Cape Town, South Africa. Having played extensively in the local CT indie music scene, Eric began writing and recording his own songs in 2012.

His songwriting has led him to his 8th Album, State of Presence, which was recently released. He sent us over a copy of the album to check out and we were thoroughly impressed. What I’m diggin’ about his sound is the fresh, not-like-the-rest indie/alt-rock sound he has going on.

As you listen through State of Presence, you can hear Eric’s melodic songwriting talent come through with his ability to write some catchy hooks and melodies, all the while keeping the energy of the track up and moving. Sometimes he can be in your face, other times in your mind, but not matter which way you have him, his music will definitely keep you wanting more. If you are a fan of any of the alt-rock bands from the late 90’s early 2000’s then Mr. Kito is right up your alley.

Stream State of Presence below and leave your thoughts in the comments. If you dig it, you can pick up the album from his BandCamp page.
