Zulus, “Kisses”

There's no greater call to attention in modern society than the siren. There are so many forces it is the emblem of; the cops, the air raid, the drunken pack of rowdy soccer fans with an airhorn. A siren is never really indicative of something good, except at the beginning of “Kisses”, by Zulus, their single off of the Aagoo self-titled LP the band is releasing on July 10. The four piece has been playing around New York for a minute now, frequently with their friends Hunters, who are another great, dark, post-punk force in the city right now, and also released their record on Aagoo. “Kisses”, after summoning the listener with the siren, jumps into vibrato-laced snotty vocals backed by a grumbling bass line, and then jumping into a refrain hard-rock-out moment. The percussion jumps around from a simple tapping to a much greater force on the refrain. Eventually the siren is replaced by an echoing guitar line – at that moment, a sigh is released.
