On August 11, 2010, Denmark’s indie pop band The Kissaway Trail opened for UK’s Wild Beasts at a sold out show at the Highline Ballroom in New York. I met most of the band immediately upon entering the venue and as the guys were super nice, I knew they were going to rock my world in a few short hours. And they did! Their music reminds me a bit of The Beach Boys mixed with Arcade Fire and according2g, that’s awesome! Co-lead singers Thomas Fagerlund and Soren Corneliussen (pictured above) harmonize at the same time and they thanked the crowd many times for such a warm reception. The last time The Kissaway Trail played in New York, they covered Neil Young and this time, they covered a track by The Pixies (Where is The Mind). Soren Coneliussen gave me 4 free download codes for 2 songs (SDP, Beat Your Heartbeat), 1 remix (SDP – White Lies Remix) and one video (SDP), so send an email to gpoet7 at gmail dot com with the subject line “Kissaway Trail” between now and August 31, 2010 and I’ll provide you with the download code. The tracks are great, so hurry while supplies last. More on my encounter with the band coming soon, so stay tuned.
