In which The Telephones decide to become the Japanese Killers, and not just because lead singer Akira Ishige makes some dramatic pointing motions a la loveable bag-o-wind Brandon Flowers. I’m not talking about the whole “are we human, or are we dancer” debacle, I mean the version that managed to pump out awesome rock songs peppered with waves of synth. “Kiss Me, Love Me, Kiss Me” sounds massive – it might just be the electronic shimmer running underneath the song or the echoey vocals, but those elements lend this track a sense of bigness. As Shen over at SparkPlugged points out, The Telephones hold onto some silliness via the video’s finger puppets and accordion appearance – not to mention that goofy-in-a-good-way outro – helping them dodge all the self-serious pitfalls that doomed Las Vegas’ finest (sorry Panic At The Disco).
