Single Review: Kissin' Black - Wild Child

Ahead of their début full-length album, Swiss goth-rockers Kissin' Black have released their first single 'Wild Child.' Originally by W.A.S.P, they've transformed it into a goth classic.

Dynamic jangly guitars intertwine with moody bass-lines creating a dark atmosphere. The structure adds to this as the song builds up, breaks down and flows taking the listener along on its journey. It's packed with emotive melodies, while vocally the song is dynamic with layered vocals and plenty of memorable hooks.

Kissin' Black have proven that it's possible to make a great cover and a goth anthem in the 21st century.
