The Pink Noise Sessions
received 03.06


Southern California’s 5 piece dance punk sensation A Kiss Could Be Deadly -- Lauren Baird (vox), Chris Qualls (programming, songwriter), Tim Floyd (Guitar), Kelly Cairns (Bass), and Danny DeLeon(Drums) – developed from the musical project of Chris and Lauren. Their musical collaboration evolved into a live band and they recruited Tim, Kelly, and Danny for their excellent musicianship and their mutual appreciation of the vision Chris and Lauren had for A Kiss Could Be Deadly: energetic danceable music with the power and fervor of punk music.

Their most recent CD, Pink Noise Sessions, reflects that vision, and we say "well done"! The band draws on diverse dance, punk, and new wave influences like The Bravery, Imogen Heap, Descendents, The Police, and Pat Benetar to create unique electropunk songs infused with powerpop sensibility. Lauren's solid and powerful vocals are like rocket fuel and put each song into overdrive.

The band recently won the Alternative Press Almost Famous award and with the band’s talent and chemistry, we’re sure AKCBD will outdo themselves on their next release.
