L.A. Duo Kisses' Video For "Control" Will Make You Happy
the video premiere
In "Control," the second single from California duo Kisses' latest album Rest In Paradise, lead singer Jesse Kivel is lamenting the toll L.A.'s gnarled traffic is beginning to take on his relationship. "The lyrics allude to the west and east sides of Los Angeles, a drive that each year becomes more treacherous than the next," he's explained. But the song's gleeful video does not reflect those themes at all, and that was exactly the point. "My goal with this video was to put our dream team backing band behind us and to just shoot a straight forward, studio music video with that unconventional lineup," Kivel told us. To achieve that vision, Kisses, who is comprised of Kivel and bandmate Zinzi Edmundson teamed up with L.A. filmmaker Adrian Buitenhuis, who collaborated with the band on their 2013 video for "Huddle."
