THE DUMMY FAMILY

The Kiss That Took A Trip expands its sonic palette and, most of all, enhances the quality of its sound in this sophomore album. Retaining the trademark combination of melody and blurry instrumentation, The Kiss takes a step forward to sweeter, cleaner and slightly more optimistic tunes. Elegant midtempos abound, and the traditional rock setup and synthesizers coexist peacefully.


Underneath this lighter sound (even cheery, sometimes), a shadow of melancholy and resignation creeps, and occasionally shows. The result is an album with songs as diverse as “Wounded naked woman”, a furious track punctuated with highly melodic bells, “Burning chariot down a hill”, which resorts to an almost unplugged approach, or “This place is dead”, an hypnotic orchestral loop. The album makes room for an unavoidable epic, “Birth and death of Jonah Two”, probably the most accomplished song by The Kiss That Took A Trip thus far.


The record includes the single “The Geneve fires”, the spiritual twin for 2009's “Hi, America!”.
