SILLY KISSERS – Precious Necklace

So, I’ve spent the majority of my day rocking out to this totally sweet Canadian band, “Silly Kissers.” There’s a way cooler video from these guys over here, but this song is significantly better in my opinion.

Whenever I see music categorized as “synth pop,” I get slightly terrified, because I think it might sound something like this:

Thank God the folks over at ARBUTUS RECORDS/WEIRD CANADA wouldn’t stand for that. Silly Kissers is definitely synth pop, but they don’t rely predominately on wicked distorted stabs and side chain compressed saws to give them a “bad ass” edge. The song writing is incredibly strong. Their lyrics are fantastic and their melodies are infectious. The production is a little on the DIY sounding side but this fits thematically with the lyrics and overall feel of the songs.

I know relatively little else about this band other than that they sound great. It’s really dreamy, analog-y sounding pop that will have you saying to yourself, “Maybe Canada isn’t just all Tom Greens, and ‘aboots’ and hambacon. Maybe those folks have fun too.”
