Sweden’s Pallers gave us the critically acclaimed “Humdrum” a year or two ago, and backed the single with a few remixes of the song. Time has passed, and they’ve finally blessed us with a new tune, this one dubbed “The Kiss”. The song flirts with the same chill, DJ-inspired electronica of “Humdrum” but there seems to be a bit more depth to the track. It’s emotive, like its predecessor, but it also contains a bit more warmth.
States Labrador Records, who released the Humdrum single and will do the same on its follow-up, “The Kiss” was inspired by a DJ-set by Tobi Neumann in Ibiza and offers an unrivaled blend of hypnotic electronica, sweeping synthesizers and embracing pop-melancholy that just keeps building.
The statement is fitting; the song builds from its brooding, moody beginning into a solid, danceable track with a hint of overcast sunshine. In “The Kiss”, Pallers has audibly created an aura of hope. And it’s no wonder, it features Johan AngergÃ¥rd (Acid House Kings, Club 8, The Legends) of whom I’m an extremely big fan. “The Kiss” hits all the right points — it has a good beat, inspires movement, and has a hint of depression that simply cannot be ignored.
