The Kissaway Trail are Thomas L. Fagerlund (vox, guitar), S? B. Corneliussen (vox, guitar), Daniel Skjoldmose (guitar, keys, backing vocals), Rune Pedersen (bass, backing vocals) and Hasse Mydtskov (drums, backing vocals). The majority of the 11 tracks on display are sweeping epics of immense ambition and scope, and their music soars, filled with majestic guitar lines, dramatic melodies and epic arrangements. The Kissaway Trail list the likes of Sonic Youth, Grandaddy, Daniel Johnston, Pixies and The Beach Boys as being their main influences, though in their native Denmark, where they have recently taken off massively due to their incendiary live shows, the band have also been compared to the likes of Arcade Fire and The Flaming Lips.
Just one of the many brilliant bands on the Bella Union records roster, this Danish band have been plauded by the likes of Colin Murray who has often played the song "La La Song", and they have the honours of appearing on FIFA 09 with the brilliant song "61".
A band definitely worth catching live too, have seen and spoke to the guys and they are great.
Brilliant price at Play, penny cheaper at Amazon but no Quidco, and worth checking out if you like Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips, but with more of a pop sensibility like Arcade Fire.
Tremendous debut album, great artwork, and a great price.
