“SDP” is the first track to be taken from The Kissaway Trail’s majestic new album, “SLEEP MOUNTAIN”, released 8th March on Bella Union records…

With Peter Katis (Interpol, The National, The Twilight Sad) producing, “Sleep Mountain” reveals how The Kissaway Trail have grown. Combining the urgency and dynamics of bands as diverse as Sonic Youth and The Flaming Lips with the sensitivity of “Another Green World”-period Eno, “Sleep Mountain” is a contemporary, timeless, vulnerable rock classic.

Critical acclaim for The Kissaway Trail’s self-titled debut album…

“A savagely beautiful noise that recalls the Flaming Lips and Grandaddy… The Kissaway Trail really do evoke the spirit of Arcade Fire at times, especially on ‘Smother + Evil = Hurt’, which is the equal of anything on ‘Neon Bible’… You’d do well to check out these great Danes”.

NME – 8/10

“The debut from The Kissaway Trail demands attention. There are obvious nods to the Beach Boys, the Flaming Lips and the euphoria of Arcade Fire, but the influences are filtered through the band’s fresh, fighting spirit… Mesmerising”

The Guardian – 4 Stars ****

“The good thing about these Danish magpies is that while their anthemic pulse doffs it’s cap to the Flaming Lips, Arcade Fire and Bloc Party, the resuly has a pop savvy that creates a memorable hybrid… It takes glorious melodies to compete with these comarisons, but this debut has them in spades”

The Times – 4 Stars ****

“As enchanting as a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale… The Kissaway Trail’s wide-eyed and wondrous ambition is infectious”

MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“A veritable dawn chorus of mellifluous majesty… An absolute revelation”

The Fly – 4 stars ****

“This debut album from the Danish quintet is phenomenal… You have to hear it”

Rock Sound – 8/10

“There’s enough originality and ambition on their debut album to suggest a future as bright as their soaring anthems”

The Sun – 4 Stars ****

“Awash from the start with dreamy, Mercury Rev-style arrangements, their epic indie sound could soon see them join the ranks of the similarly grandiose Arcade Fire and Sigur Rós.”

Drowned In Sound 8/10

“well-stocked with singalong polyphonic glee… euphoric yet mildly macabre in a Flaming Lips vein… this filler-free debut is effortlessly palatable”
