If you haven't heard of Kisses, then this is the post for you. I decided to zero in on the boyfriend-girlfriend duo from Los Angeles who first caught my attention when a friend shared "Lovers" with me awhile back. I could've sworn that was Zach Condon of Beirut singing, but I then found out the name to the soothing voice was Jesse Kivel. The unique style of pop that Kivel and girlfriend Zinzi Edmundson create is easy on the ears & gets the feet tapping. So what I'm trying to say is - it's amazing.  Since the 2010 release of their debut album The Heart of the Nightlife, Kisses released Kisses – Other Planets - EP along with a handful of singles backed with remixes from artists like Joe Goddard, Active Child & this one from DyE that I am extremely obsessed with. 
The first track to be released from their upcoming album KIDS IN LA is "The Hardest Part", and you can check it out for yourself below! The release date is set for May 14th via Cascine & here's a little something in support of the forthcoming album.

Yesterday the duo dropped their remix of HAIM's "Send Me Down" via Facebook & guess what - it's a free download if your ears decide it's a keeper! 
(K i'm through being corny for the night.) 
I really love this remix & appreciate how Kisses give this percussion driven track a new disco-esque feel.
