On March 24, Don Giovanni Records will release the self-titled debut album by Brooklyn, NY indie-pop outfit, Kissing is a Crime.
The band have just shared a video for new track “Permanent Damages,” which you can watch below.
Singer/guitarist Matt Molnar says of the video “We were working out the details for our treatment when the travel ban was announced. It was only days later, that our director, Assal Ghawami — a woman of Iranian descent — and the band met up to finalize the details. The ban left a chilling effect on us all, but particularly Assal. We wanted to have a character who represents the oppressive figures in the current government. The video is meant to mirror the political climate right now in the US, representing our government and its treatment of its citizens as an abusive family dynamic.”
