Kissin – “call me when you land”


Kansas City-based artist Kissin delivers a striking depiction of romantic loss and lingering memories on new track “call me when you land.” A lingering dial tone, reflective of a missed connection, opens are city sounds and brassy blares mingle. Lush synths enamor thereafter as serene vocals subtly weave in, fully emerging amidst jangling guitar lightness.

“Before you changed your mind, you had convinced me I could fly,” the vocals deliver, capturing the ensuing descent and loss of purpose/confidence following this break-up. A more impassioned vocal fervency aligns with expressive guitar tones in the second half, concluding with a palpable emission of yearning amidst an intimately atmospheric production. “call me when you land” is a definitive success from Kissin.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
