KYSSINGER – “Soft Morning”


“Soft Morning” struts a hooky rock immediacy from KYSSINGER, the Belgian indie rock project of Kent Huet. A Strokes-esque rock appeal enamors alongside lyrics that celebrate a reclaiming of personal time over one’s morning routines, absent of smartphones and technology’s all-encompassing grip. The poignant lyrical modernity melds with a contagious rock spirit for a quality showing from KYSSINGER.

The initial lyrics convey a wake-up routine amidst trickling guitars and warming bass lines. “I wanna see the world” they present, traversing into a punchy “take you back in time,” hook — reminding fondly there of The Strokes. “Soft Morning” appeals in its steadily escalating pop/rock spirit, exuding an early ’00s indie-rock nostalgia in its dynamic and satiating range — from the quainter “nothing else you can do,” gripes into the playful guitar punches within the “another day, another night,” infectiousness. We have this one on replay.

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
