Kisses | Funny Heartbeat

August 7, 2012 at 11:57 pm Leave a comment

Kisses (aka vocalist Jesse Kivel and keyboardist Zinzi Edmundson) released a new single, “Funny Heartbeat”, which sounds like it was pulled out of the glorious, sunny-pop tradition of 80s radio. In fact, you could take out the lead vocal track, and the song could be mistaken for something like El DeBarge. And that’s said with all due respect. Pure pop grooves are something so undervalued in modern music, which tends to think that only the avant-garde and extremely experimental have merit. But the truth is, it’s often more difficult to find that popular melody, rhythm and sing-song nature that grabs all kinds of people by the hips and hearts. “Funny Heartbeat” does just that. The duo says they’re “putting the finishing touches on LP2 with Saint Etienne’s Pete Wiggs and Tim Larcombe” and decided to release a new song “to celebrate the end of summer and announce our return.” You can read more about Kisses, and stream some track from previous Their Bated Breath posts about the band here. You can follow Kisses at soundcloud and facebook. – David D. Robbins Jr.
