Kites With Lights is an indie electro pop and synth pop band and the pseudonym for the music of Jonah Cordy.[1] Cordy is originally from Pittsburgh, PA, currently based in Athens, GA. Since 2005 a number of EPs, singles, and remixes have been released. In 2011 the first full-length album Cosmonauts was released on 24 Hour Service Station.


Kites With Lights began in 2005 when two self produced E.P.'s received radio play in the United States, U.K. and Sweden. In 2007 the single, "It's On" was released on Swedish label Electric Fantastic Sound. In 2009 the "The Weight Of Your Heart", and "I Wish Every Other Day Was Christmas" was released on the Tampa based record label 24 Hour Service Station. This led to Cordy contributing a remix of the song "A Force of Nature" by label mate Pocket and featuring Mark Burgess of the Chameleons U.K. This single was part of a series including Steve Kilbey of The Church, Tanya Donelly and Robyn Hitchcock. In 2010, Jonah contributed a cover of the New Order song "Dream Attack" to the tribute album Ceremony - A New Order Tribute, endorsed by Peter Hook of New Order, which benefited The Salford Foundation Trust. Cordy also produced a remix of "Ceremony" performed by sister act Yes But No which was included in the double album. In August 2011, his first full length album, the eight song Cosmonauts was released worldwide.
