The Kissaway Trail: New Remix from White Lies and Ticket Giveaway for Tonight's NYC Show!

Indie rock from Denmark? Sign me up. If you aren't already a fan of The Kissaway Trail, and their spectacular new album, Sleep Mountain, then let this be a nudge in the right direction for you. Drawing on influences from the likes of The Beach Boys to Sonic Youth, this Danish quintet recently rocked a number of rad performances in Austin during SXSW.



Cool dudes, White Lies, took on The Kissaway Trail's lead single, SDP, and gave it a rub of noise rock wash and we're tossing it to you for free. The Danes are currently on tour, and hey, they're swinging by Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight with The Temper Trap.

The Temper Trap - Love Lost (Keljet Remix)

In February, a pair of unknown kids sent us a killer note and remix. Frankly, it's one of the most played mixes I've spun through so far this year. Keljet hit us with their fix of The xx's Crystalised and as noted, is a mainstay in our ears and hearts. So today, what better way to send us into a warm and sunny weekend, than with new cut from the Dutch duo.



This time, the boys bring us their remix of The Temper Trap's Love Lost...yet another soft and soothing track that they tip ever so slightly over the line between laid-back and letting loose. Another fantastic rework that's bringing extra light into this sunny day.


Also, we're still at a loss for any massive amounts of info on the dudes. Although, we do know that on April 9, they'll debut their first official release: Tuna's Get Up! (Keljet Remix).


Don't worry lads, we're paying attention.
