Come out & put a beer in your face reads a 2013 post on one of Kissing Party's Facebook pictures promoting a local show. From the looks of their photos, the drunkest guy at the party has been their consistent cameraman; the perfect fit for Kissing Party's raucous shows. The shots accurately depict their performances as intimate, beer-soaked, late night gigs that pair appropriately with their songwriting subjects of debt, regret, heartbreak, and hair dye, all themes that can be found on their upcoming June 30th release Looking Back It Was Romantic But At The Time I Was Suffering.
Today, we're delighted to premiere the Denver outfits "Trash," a brief, punk inspired cut that will leave you thirsty for more. With their notable track brevity, Kissing Party's new album is exactly what booze-fueled, heartbreak twee pop is supposed to sound like. With hushed, alternating male and female vocals resembling The Pains of Being Pure At Heart fused with The Sundays and Smiths-esque jangling guitars, Kissing Party effectively packs quick-hitting, powerful, punk punches into catchy, danceable ditties that will get the people going.
