Some Midnight Kissin’ is sultry rock noir made for, well, midnight kissing in the clubs. Slippery smooth synth-rock ala Franz Ferdinand, The Killer’s, Interpol, She Wants Revenge…you get the direction. The songs are catchy, full of hooks and perfect for Saturday night that you can not help but dance around to. As another reviewer wrote:
In The Dark Romantics’ world, it’s always Saturday night. You’re always dressed to kill. You’re always in the middle of the best first date in your life. It’s a pretty decent place to hang out, huh?
and there you go. I would be genuinely surprised not to see these guys experience great commercial success on the back of this release and it is quite deserved. Since my FF clone comment to the wife the cd has made it’s way into heavy rotation in our household, our cars and onto out “workout” play lists on the iPods. So, check out the samples and if you like them, buy the cd. If you happen to live in the Tampa Bay area you can get all of their show listings of their myspace site. I, for one, really look forward to seeing these guys.
btw: With all the sex, people of the night references, and what not I find myself wondering if the Rocky Horror-esque cd cover was an accident. “Touch Me, Touch Me, I wanna be dirty” indeed.
