Bio

Electronic Melbourne duo Kult Kyss unveil ‘Kill That Beat’, the latest in a string of dance floor anthems. Injecting listeners with a dose of euphoria and escapism, the new single provides much needed relief in the wake of 2020. Merging icy layered vocals with bouncing synths and organic percussion, “Kill That Beat” encompasses the signature sound we’ve come to expect from vocalist Rromarin and producer Haxx.

“In the wake of such a challenging year we wanted to create a dose of something fun and cathartic; a track that makes you move, that frees the heart and mind. ‘Kill That Beat’ is tenacious, plucky, unwavering and upbeat. It is a song dedicated to perseverance and grit” - Kult Kyss

‘Kill That Beat’ is the pair’s third release of 2020, following on from their singular rework of Duke Dumont’s 'Ocean Drive' for etcetc’s Decade of Dance EP and ‘God Is A Bassline’ which saw high rotation on triple j Unearthed, earning support from Spotify with editorial placements in New Music Friday, Indie Arrivals, New Dance Beats and Top Shelf Electronic.

In the midst of Melbourne’s tough lockdowns this year, Kult Kyss joined Seismic Talent Agency alongside artists such as The Presets, Running Touch and Alison Wonderland. The duo is looking forward to returning to the stage, immersing audiences in their future pop universe and releasing an EP in early 2021.

Another stunner for KK! You keep it in a really tight zone lyrically but this one isn't about deep conceptuality but eliciting a feeling and that's exactly what it does.
