M for Montreal:: Silly Kissers

There are some crazy things happening here in MTL thanks to the good people at M for Montreal. I'll be doing a better dissection of the conference, bands and antics later - honestly, Miracle Fortress fans are in for an (electro) shock and The RAA own every stage they play now - but there are a couple bands that are new to me that I'm super excited to check out.

One band is Silly Kissers. These youngens are all about the shimmering, sunshine-y electro pop that makes you want to dance - the swagger they offer up on Easy Fantasy is hard to shake and the 80's vibe of Thinking of You is strangely addictive - but the EP showcases the band's darker lyrical preference. I Never Said comes across as the counter point to a Casiotone For the Painfully Alone where vocalist Jane Penny refutes Owen's melancholic heartbreak and longing. They are a young band, and a few more laps of the track will help, but the potential is obvious.

They play tonight @ 9:05 PM and rumor has it that Cadence Weapon and his awesome high-top fade will be hitting the stage with them for a collabo.
