Camp Blu – “Bloody Kisses”


Meshing post-punk rhythms with a surf-y modern pop punch, “Bloody Kisses” is a new single from Camp Blu, the project of Miami-based childhood friends Angelo Ruiz and Frank Ferrer.

“This song was written with inspiration from the horror movie FRESH,” they write. “This record follows the thought pattern of a hopeless romantic that has a dark side to his lust.”

The steady initial verses embrace upfront vocals and a post-punk pulse, with suave guitar lines emerging as the vocals momentarily exit. Surf-laden twangs and hazy synths complement a more yearning vocal tone past the one-minute mark, culminating in an ardent rock composure before more post-punk rhythmic embrace in the conclusion. “Bloody Kisses” is a catching success from Camp Blu.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2023’ Spotify playlist.
