Dutch electronic rock duo Trip to Dover created an interesting hybrid of styles on their 2013 EP Vegas & Berlin, mixing Eighties synths power pop with hard rock. Olga and Johannes Taal offer more of the same on Kiss Fight Dance, an EP with three new tracks filled out with a couple of interesting remixes.
Once again they have succeeded creating kick-ass dance rock on a shoestring budget. The monolithic Monochrome is the most memorable of the new songs, while lead single Lifelong Lovesong (available a a free download from website) already picked up considerable airplay. Trip to Dover have a big sound that deserves bigger rooms.
