The first long demo by The Kiss That Took A Trip is the culmination of 3 years of tiptoe releases and a search for an identity. This recording teases the listener by switching between the catchy and the dissonant, taking pleasure in damaging beauty in critical places but remaining listenable and embracing melody unashamedly. The most apparent sonical departure from previous releases are drums, which harken back to the pounding of “Renaissance”, both aggressive and odd (be it awkward or unexpectedly autopilot). The music takes a turn towards a more acid and electric feel, and quietness works as a relief, instead of an objective.

The recording includes the song “Hi, America!”, but must be experienced as a whole. A filler-free unit.
