Kiss Kiss – Reality Vs The Optimist

Punk bands being ambitious enough to include a weird instrument in their repetoir interest me a lot. Cursive and The Stiletto Formal are prime examples of this. Kiss Kiss go the opposite direction adn rather than employ a cello add a super electric violin to their band and it works wonderfully. Adding texture is what these string instruments do best and it completely works with the at times insane, at times catchy and at times saddening Kiss Kiss debut album.
