Press Play: Kisses


"People Can Do The Most Amazing Things"

MySpace. Twitter. Site.

A lovely boy and girl from Los Angeles make up the excellence that is Kisses. They've only got two singles out right now, but hopefully will release more asap. I don't want to play these songs out too quickly, but I just might because I listen to them at least five times a day. (Hopefully you will too). So, fun story behind today's Press Play post. I was putting it together like every other Press Play I've done, using the artwork of the group, etc, when my husband recommended I make an inspiration board with it. Genius! This is the thing about me (I'm about to let you into the wonderful mind that is Junia), I replay 80's movies ALL the time. If I'm not re-watching my favorites, I'm dreaming about them and trying my best to have 80's movie moments in my daily life. Every great 80's movie always had those memorable moments where someone was running after another person, there was a first kiss, the first sighting of the girl of their dreams, getting dressed for prom, losing a best friend you were falling in love with, the list goes on. Those are the moments that stick with me, and they're so strong because they each had an insanely epic song playing in the background. Listening to "People Do The Most Amazing Things", although it's not in any soundtrack, evokes that feeling. It stings me right in the heart, it's that good. So, because I'm such a visual person, love to share music, and always try to express the way I see things with the people I know, I'm going to create an inspiration board for each Press Play to share what I see when I hear these songs. 

What did you think of the song and inspiration board together?

Love the song. I just recently came across their other single "Bermuda" and just had to get it. Just got this one too, so thanks for sharing! Also, I think you'll like the video on Youtube by the band Summer Camp for their song "Round the Moon". They used clips from the same 70's Swedish film ("En kärlekshistoria") that are part of your inspiration board. Check it out and let me know what you think. Lastly, check out the song "Everything Is Alright" by Four Tet. It's an instrumental song from 2007 but I think you'll appreciate it. I think it would make a good song for a mashup of pics, vids, etc.

@Hi-Fi - I knew you would dig this! :)

@Marko - I was really happy to see your comment and recommendations. Love when people recommend good tunes for me to hear. I totally hear you with the Fourtet song. He's been a long time favorite, and think it'd be fun to do another Press Play using an instrumental song. I had never heard that Summer Camp song, so THANK YOU. It's so good! I'm hooked and am definitely going to look for more. So happy you love this song as much as I do. Can't stop playing it!
