It's our great pleasure today to release Kisses' newest single, "Control," and announce the release of their third full-length album, Rest In Paradise, out Oct. 9.
The album is available now for pre-order in classic black and limited-edition deluxe sage-colored 180-gram vinyl limited to 25 copies, as well as digitally on iTunes and Bandcamp.
One half of the duo, Jesse Kivel, told us this about the creation of "Control":
While we set out to make a 'live' sounding record, "Control" is definitely the closest song on the record to marrying our new sound with our old, drum machine and synthetic sound. With help from both Andrew Maury and Jeff Brodsky in their own midi and electronic universes, we were able to bring an electronic element to this record, that felt natural with the live playing of the guys in Midnight Magic.
While the groove of this song may be New York, the lyrics allude to the west and east sides of Los Angeles, a drive, that each year becomes more treacherous then the next. Next time you are in traffic on your commute, put this on and find solace in the groove that fully understands your traffic woes.
