Stereogum’s latest Band to Watch is Kississippi, the local duo of Zoe Allaire Reynolds and Colin James Kupson that we met earlier this year by way of an interview with Skye Leppo. Back then we were knee-deep in Reynolds’ i can feel you in my hair still EP (recorded pre-Kupson), a collection of intimate, home-recorded songs centered around the instantly tugging “Dogmas.”
Now, working together, Reynolds and Kupson will release their first proper EP We Have No Future, We’re All Doomed next month. This effort was recorded with Modern Baseball’s Jake Ewald and, as you’ll hear on the first single “Indigo” below, capitalizes on filling the void with a crushing sense of wistful loneliness. Via Stereogum:
“[It’s] basically about the big winter sad, and missing having someone to cuddle up with,” Reynolds explained. “I can’t move because it’s comfortable there/ His legs tangled in mine, legs tangled in hair,” she sings on the track. “I can’t move because he’s comfortable there.” It hints at a codependency, one that can be inconvenient but is also sorely missed.
We Have No Future, We’re All Doomed will be out November 20th via Soft Speak Records. We caught Kississippi opening for Friendship’s album release party with Abi Reimold and Old Maybe at Everybody Hits on Saturday night, and they sounded big and bold with poppy moments recalling The Sundays. Listen to “Indigo” on Stereogum here and check out “Dogmas” below.
