Kult Kyss meld their various sonic influences on ‘Be Cool’
Unmistakable Melbourne duo Kult Kyss are back with another electrifying single.
‘Be Cool’ explores the need to be close with someone and provide a source of comfort and relief. Touching on universal themes of emotion, the track evokes a reflection on the spaces that form between people in love, and the desire to reconnect and repair things with one another.
The electronic duo explain, “In creating the track we wanted to strike a sonic balance between the modern and retrospective sounds of UK house music, drawing influences from artists like Jamie XX and Bicep, with throwbacks to the synthesised trance throbs of the ‘90s.”
The single plays to their unique strengths, with Rromarin’s soaring vocals and Haxx’s sparkling production creating a dazzling display of future pop, solidifying them as a dynamic force. Co-produced alongside Cam Bluff (Amy Shark, Allday, Illy) and mixed by Anthony Garvin (Jagwar Ma, Last Dinosaurs), ‘Be Cool’ continues to establish Kult Kyss as ones to watch, pushing boundaries and drawing listeners into their electro wonderland.
Flexing their musical prowess, Kult Kyss are also in the running as one of the top 5 finalists in the triple j Unearthed remix competition, with their recently released take on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s ‘New Sky’.
With a growing fanbase and hypnotising live show, Kult Kyss have recently debuted their new live show to a 200+ strong Melbourne crowd.
