Bristol-based heavy-pop four-piece Bitter Kisses have shared their debut single ‘Pr*y’. Recorded with Josh Gallop (Phoxjaw, Mother Vulture) at Stage 2 Studios, and mixed and mastered by Tom Cory (Novatines, Superlove)
Formed in 2022, Bitter Kisses made their live debut in August at Bridgwater’s ‘We Hear You Fest’, quickly making a name for themselves with their high energy live shows and synth-infused blend of Dark Pop and Goth Rock.
Reflecting on the inspiration behind the single the band comments:
“Pr*y was partially inspired by a fever dream in which Lady Gaga collaborated with Queens of the Stone Age to produce a new Earth Wind And Fire song.
When writing Pr*y we wanted to create a track which could ambiguously explore the difference in meanings of the words ‘prey’ and ‘pray’, and how they each apply to dangerous or unhealthy relationships. One person could worship another, while at the same time being preyed upon by the subject of their love. The meaning of the lyrics can change depending on which version prey/pray you want to hear whenever they’re used in the song.”
Heavy synths and some knockout lyrics from lead vocalist Gemma Tracey see a hugely catchy track with a bouncy rhythm and addictive melodies. It all kicks off on the chorus beefed up with Josh Butcher’s well placed guitar lines before he treats us to a tasty solo to round things off.
