Released in the US last year, looking back it was romantic but at the time i was suffocating, the sophomore release from Denver, Colorado’s Kissing Party, will be reissued in Europe on 2 November.
Packed with infectious kernels of self-appointed “Indie Slop” that barely broach the two-minute mark, Kissing Party’s looking back it was romantic but at the time i was suffocating‘s 15 musical poems lovingly crafted by Gregg Dolan (guitar/vocals), Deirdre Sage (vocals), Lee Evans (bass), Joe Hansen (guitar) and Shane Reid (drums) are sugary sweet and immediately addicting. Overlooked but not forgotten, Kissing Party should be heralded for perfecting succinct pop songs others can only dream of creating.
Kissing Party will play the annual Rot Congress Halloween Show this Saturday 31 October at Denver’s Skylark Lounge. More info here.
