On Missing, the pop ingredients are plentiful, but take a backseat to The White Kites fondness of prog. Granted, it’s more accessible prog over histrionics, informed by the pop sides of Caravan, Genesis, Kevin Ayers, Floyd, and The Zombies to cite a few. The Beatles of course are no strangers, but they might be under the guise of Mr. Kite here, lending a baroque flair to the songs. It’s a heady mix, cutting a pretty wide swath in regards to influences and touchstones, but by no means a grab-bag. The White Kites have the chops to back up their aspirations.
