It’s like Scooch never went away! Or rather, they did, but decided to come back as a Swedish dansband – after two failed attempts to get onto the Big Reunion.
That’s the sound of ‘Kyss Mig’, the new single from Titanix. Listening to it brings back memories of one of the finer album tracks from ‘Four Sure’. High energy bubblegum synth pop. Not quite good enough to be a Steps song, but definitely good enough for it to be deserving of some recognition. So if you were of that era, and particularly if you were of that inclination, then definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed. Ridiculous key change and all.
‘Kyss Mig’ is one of those songs that transcends dansband, flirts with schlager, and ends the night throwing up behind some club that is blaring out Europop, while a gay man holds back its hair. That is ‘Kyss Mig’. And thank Christ, THANK YOU TITANIX, that there are decent people out there who are still making this kind of music.
It’s the first single to be taken from their new album, which will be out later this year. They released a video for it last night. And here it is. The song kicks off at the 50 second mark, if you’re in a hurry.
