Denver’s trash-pop princesses Kissing Party just released a new album, Mom & Dad. Today they’ve shared the video for powerful track “Jimmy Dean,”premiered via Ghettoblaster Magazine. Deirdre from the band explains the song “is about being stalked around the neighborhood by creeps, feeling unsafe in ‘safe spaces’ & what it’s like being ‘the girl in the band’ in 2019 when it feels like women’s rights are stuck in 1819.”
This follows previous singles “Wasted Worlds Apart,” ”Jesse” and “A Little Star” from the album. Kissing Party continues to portray the moments of small town life; finding yourself, finding others, making it through the day. The combination of airy, wistfully hopeful lyrics and jangly, crunchy guitars make for a perfect encapsulation of the DIY indie sound. This brand of endearing, authentic slop-pop is what Kissing Party is now known for, and dives back into with a new rush on their album Mom & Dad.
