“Copernicus” is a hypnotic, murky rocker from The Kiss That Took A Trip, a rock project from Madrid with elements of shoegaze and rock. The project of musician and producer M.D. Trello, The Kiss That Took A Trip cites influences such as Steve Albini, Trent Reznor, and Talk Talk — with the dark, moody sound on this track echoing such influences. Murky vocals and late-night guitar tones converge with effective lyrics that echo a torturous lingering. “Copernicus” is the opener on the project’s Garlands EP, released last May. The project’s sixth album is planned for this year.
“Copernicus” and other memorable tracks released in May 2019 can be streamed on Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
