While some contemporary goth-inspired indie-rock outfits get a little too crazy with the haze of effects and chaotic live performances, there are always a few bands like The Dark Romantics that bring us back down to earth. In homage to The Jesus and Mary Chain, Some Midnight Kissin’ takes an authentically gloomy approach, but without all of the bells and whistles. Howling vocals poised against incessantly driving guitars and catchy-as-hell licks make these romantics stand out amongst the post-punk fiends.
