Desoto Jones changes name to KISKA, will play debut show at Boot and Saddle 8/28
About a month ago, Philly alt-rockers Desoto Jones, decided they wanted a fresh start. The group changed their name to KISKA and haven’t looked back since. The band is making headway with writing and recording their first full LP. So far, they have finished 8 tracks and aim to finish the rest over the summer.
“Dying Balloon,” which you can preview below, is a solid example of a power ballad that delivers both in terms of vocals and guitar solos. Both the beginning and end of the song are slow; as if they are prepping you for what’s to come and then calming you down after the intense bits.
