Kitchenette – “Trick Deck”
“Trick Deck” is a new track from Kitchenette, the Amsterdam-based act who impressed multiple times last year, with “Upon the Shoulders” and “Prison Break“. This one is equally successful, though pursues a darker and murkier feel, which alongside the vocal presence reminds me fondly of a more alternative-friendly vein of Echo & the Bunnymen. The hook, in particular – “even your love for me is gone,” – is particularly reminiscent, with haunting allure. The band describes the effort as “a song about a break-up, a relationship in which you thought that you’d stay together forever but got cheated on instead.” “Trick Deck” is another success from this consistent act.
