The Perfect Kiss
As part of the on and off again nature of live shows due to Covid and vinyl delays, Monta at Odds kept busy with their annual New Order tribute show in Kansas City. The Perfect Kiss was too much fun to quit playing so it was added to the Monta at Odds live set. The song was condensed and kept true to the single version originally released by New Order. It's a guilty pleasure for the band and you can feel the excitement in the performance.
The band went into the studio and recorded a version to capture the energy of the live performance. Mikal takes lead vocals, Dedric and Kenn cover the synths, Lucas and Krysztof provide dual baritone leads, and Matthew adds the extra energy with his live drums.
The song is being released as a relaxed way to kick off the tour to Treefort Fest performance March 27th. The Perfect Kiss will also appear on Peaked, a new release of remixed and alternate versions of Peak of Eternal Light due in June 2022.
The Perfect Kiss will be released on the Record Machine March 11th on all streaming platforms and Bandcamp
