Bit by bit; piece by piece; blog post by blog post, we’re getting a pretty transparent picturing of Kisses’ unimpeachably sprightly sophomore recording, Kids in LA. First came The Hardest Part; then Huddle and now, as the anticipation hots up over their imminently Splendour-released endeavours, the duo comprising Jesse Kivel and Zinzi Edmundson turn us onto Air Conditioning. Perhaps the most progressive of the three unveiled thus far, there’s an icy, unmistakably ’80s electropop aesthetic palpitating away at its core as Kivel impersonates an unprecedentedly jovial Oliver Sim atop a glacial backdrop composed of a Hall & Oates-y bass line, gelid twinkles of synth and insouciant backing vox courtesy of partner in the sublime, Edmundson. Pump it up, etcetera.
Kids in LA is anticipated May 13th via Splendour.
