Step Rockets is a four piece band from Minneapolis and this is their debut single Kisser. This track has already received over 160,000 plays on Soundcloud within it’s first two weeks of release, and with the accompanying music video complete with hot after hours aquarium action, I would not be surprised if this ended up becoming a hit for alternative radio.
Featuring all kinds of synths and reverb befitting any shot involving jellyfish and other sea-based creatures, Kisser is one excellent piece of pure pop music. Full to the brim with hooks, this song is practically guaranteed to keep floating on every listener’s mind. It channels the psychedelic bliss of MGMT and Yeasayer, and also contains one sexy guitar solo too. It’s fantastic.
Kisser is currently available to obtain via a free download on Step Rockets’ Bandcamp page, which is something every single one of everybody ever should get doing right now.
