Stewart and Mercier's perfect partnership for creating music that is not confined to any era was the result of a chance meeting. Regardless of whether it is 1985 or 2050, Kiss Bang's debut EP transcends the sterile lines that have been drawn in pop music over the past two decades. By avoiding any particular formula, Kiss Bang creates truly timeless earworms.


Stewart shares that each song on the EP comes from personal experiences that they both share, which makes them highly relatable. They both feel everything deeply, and music has always been their outlet. They didn't write the EP with a story in mind, but it feels like a window into the life of two young people figuring out who they are and taking everything as it comes.


Mercier adds that these four songs showcase their range as artists, performers, and people. The EP contains moments of refined recklessness, preemptive heartbreak, and deep hopelessness, but in true Max and Kaya fashion, it's whimsically packaged with a 'f*** it' attitude. There were so many long nights, Sonic Diet Cokes (with the good ice), so much laughter, and so much love behind the creation of these four tracks, and they couldn't be more thrilled to share them with the world.

Stewart and Mercier reflected on their first body of work as a duo and shared their thoughts about it. According to Stewart, Kiss Bang has a unique sound, and the four songs they chose for the EP really showcase that. Each song is filled with so much emotion and intensity that it can't be described as anything else.


Mercier added that they aimed to create something timeless that feels good to drive to, cry to, fall in love to, get ready to, and dance to. They believe this is just the beginning. As life is always changing, they feel that the fire between them as artists remains the constant that they can rely on. In other words, Kiss Bang won't stop until they get their own branded Karaoke machine.

ABOUT KISS BANG

Kiss Bang is a modern pop duo that is known for their powerful music. Their lead singer, Kaya Stewart, has a soulful voice that blends perfectly with the aggressive yet ethereal playing and production of guitarist/producer Max Mercier. They bring a unique energy and rawness to pop music that is not often seen in the industry.

The duo met by chance at a bar in Los Angeles in early 2023 and started working together in Max Mercier's small studio apartment. They later went to Nashville to record nine catchy and timeless songs that explore themes of romance, sex, uncertainty, tragedy, and substance use.

Both Kaya Stewart and Max Mercier have been playing and performing music since they were 9 years old. Kaya is from Los Angeles, while Max hails from San Francisco. Together, they promise an electrifying and emotional live performance. Kaya's powerhouse voice and dominant stage presence, paired with Max's intricate guitar playing and high-energy demeanor, make for an unforgettable experience.

Kiss Bang's debut EP, "Horrors Of Your Hometown", is now available on all major platforms.
