Princeton spin-off project Kisses announced themselves with “Bermuda,” sounding something like Jens Lekman taking a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway and getting caught up at a daytime disco party. Scene compatriot Pat Grossi aka the excellent Active Child has turned the thermostat down some with this remix, pitching Jesse Kivel’s voice through an octavizer and surrounding it with his arsenal of chillier but no less danceable synths, giving it a Jens on Sally Shapiro vibe. Kisses and Active Child have a DJ date upcoming in London, so consider this track your 5/22 UK party flier.
Kisses have a full-length out soon, Active Child have a bunch of highly downloadable MP3s.
