NYC-based synth-pop trio, Moon Kissed, are gearing up to release their sophomore album, I’d Like To Tell You Something Important, due out October 22 — which also happens to be the night of their sold-out album release party at Elsewhere in Brooklyn, NY.
Today, the not-a-girl band trio shares their second offering from the forthcoming record and “Strange Satisfaction” is out now, along with an official music video.
“Strange Satisfaction” is a moody track about attraction. Moon Kissed pushes past cliché to get to a more specific truth that’s intrinsic to the experience of heartbreak. With drums like a heartbeat, the song mimics the pain of being broken into pieces.
“‘Strange Satisfaction’ is another ode to masochism; to a sexy, deep attraction that makes no sense and which you know will hurt you in the end,” said Khaya Cohen. “The verses are about the allure of attraction that is addictive despite the consequences, the chorus is the candy that you can’t leave, and the song builds to a sweet melancholy release much like the experience of being with someone who is ‘no good for you,’ but yet you are strangely satisfied by the whole experience. “
