Take Your Shoes Off – “Kiss and Tell”


A funky, summer-set pop charisma shows on “Kiss and Tell,” a new single from Take Your Shoes Off. The act, which originally began as a covers band based out of Manhattan’s East Village, describes the track as “inspired by the tension felt when seeing potential partners at the gym.”

“I can’t fight this feeling, she’s in front of me,” the smitten vocals let out amidst funky bass and glistening guitars, asking “do you think she’s looking at me?” — certainly capturing a state of intrigue. Brassy warmness injects alongside the “I know,” refrain, building into the multi-vocal title-referencing hook. “Kiss and Tell” is a charismatic, infectious stirrer from Take Your Shoes Off.

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