kisses.


kisses are jesse kivel and zinzi edmundson from los angeles, california. they are inspired by kivel's friendship to cult disco producer and former cerrone collaborator alec r. constandinos and his job as a travel writer, being sent around the world to review exotic hotels and resorts.

'bermuda' is the first single from their upcoming album 'the heart of the nightlife', introducing their instrumental disco-inspired bedroom pop sound with kivel's vocals on top which kind of reminded me of jens lekman (which is a really good thing). definitely one of the newcomers to watch this year and already a contender for one of my favorite albums this summer!

kisses - bermuda

'bermuda' will be released as a seven-inch single on surrounded by sound. you will definitely hear from them again on here soon. in the meantime, show kisses some love on myspace!
