who released double album ’94/Ninety Four in 2019.
New single: SKY KISS
“This song is technically a cover but interestingly, we do not know who the original artist is. We’ve put some of our own touches on this song but it’s mostly a cover. Has a bit of that “wall-of sound” guitar that gives it a shoegaze sound with a falsetto ear worm for a chorus. We also had to come up with a way to start the song and all come in together and since we are huge fans of “Be My Baby” by The Ronettes, we decided to pay a little homage to its drum intro.”
TUTV: If you embed an instantly sticking pop melody into a fuzzy guitar-layered sonic
bath and you add the right bells and whistles, like an overall scintillating sonority, an effervescent oh-oh-oh-oh chorus, electrical flashes here and there, and crackerjack vocals there’s a big chance you’ll end up with a winner. Which is what happens exactly right here. Trust me, Kevin is for real. Excuse them while they kiss the sky.
