From time to time you find a band that will follow you and influence your musical preferences for many years. In 2007, I found such a band when the Danish band Kissaway Trail taught me, as a math student living in the countryside in southern Jutland, that Smother plus Evil equals Hurt.
The years went by fast and tracks like ‘61’, ‘New Lipstick’, ‘Friendly Fire’, ‘SDP’, ‘Shaking the Mote’, ‘Sarah Jevo’, and of course ‘Nørrebro’ joined the list of my personal favourites. This year they are back with yet another magnificent track.
As part of the tribute album ‘Re-Recorded’ – an album released back in the beginning of August consisting of reinterpretations of Psyched Up Janis’ classic songs from the 90s – they have unveiled their cover version of the brilliant track ‘Wild Flames Of Love’. The new version of the old track has the exact same raw attitude and nature as the original version from 1999.
This track will suit the current weather, day, and situation perfectly. To be honest, I find this time of the month rather hard, as the bank account is as empty as it can be, the weather as Danish as it can be, and no holidays or vacations in sight the next many days. Sure I know there are only a couple of months until Christmas, but then again, you know that time is stressful and with exams before and after it. Fuck that.
Forget all about stressful exams and autumn-shittyness, at least for a moment, and check out Kissaway Trail’s cover of ‘Wild Flames Of Love’ below. Close your eyes, burn your books, delete your lectures boring slides, and use the entire evening laying on the floor with the music playing and a cheap box of bad red wine.
