Indie pop singer/songwriter UPSAHL is back with “Kiss Me Now”, a modern tale where she recalls her first dates and how terrible/great they can be.
With this song, it is hard not to relate. In a world caught between Tinder, Grindr or whatever the app you use, our modern concepts of dating have changed. Men are not expected to pay the bill anymore, girls can do the first move, and UPSAHL knows that: in “Kiss Me Now”, she recalls that feeling on waiting for the other person to do the first move and thinking “ok fuck it, I’m doing it”. She adds about the track:
It is a modern take on a classic first date. Everything is going great, the chemistry is there, but the kiss just isn’t happening. I remember going on a first date when I was in high school and thinking, ‘I’m not going to leave this date without kissing this guy.’ I’m a very determined and driven person, so once I get my mind set on something, I can’t let it go. I feel like this song captures how I felt throughout the date, and probably how a lot of people feel when they first spend time with someone that they are into.
