Step Rockets – Kisser

Hailing from the Twin Cities, Step Rockets is an indie rock band exploring psychedelia, modern hooks, and worldly grooves. The foursome’s sound could best be described as The Flaming Lips and The Clash playing at a MGMT party. A Step Rocket is a multi-stage firing rocket that discards used charges. The name aptly describes the groups willingness to meld new sounds and styles while borrowing from genres such as Electronic Dance Music, New Wave, and Reggae. It is a cosmic recycling of past, present, and future music aimed to defy description. While making a bid to be the first band to play on the moon, the group is currently working on their second single release “Kisser” while playing a variety of shows in the Mid-West and gearing up for their first tour this September. Look for monthly shows and Step Rockets debut track “If You Tried”.

Step Rockets is a Minneapolis indie rock band exploring psychedelia, modern hooks, and worldly grooves. The foursome sounds like Pink Floyd and The Clash playing at a MGMT party.

Step Rockets – Kisser Lyrics:
Your body’s so warm.
Your skin’s so soft.
You’re turning it tight.
You’re turning me on.

Take away the nighttime.
Take away my pain.
Move me out of here.
To a far away place.
Where gravity is meaningless.
And meaning has no end.
You have to be a little cruel.
To take out the pain before you put my body in.

Leave a light, leave a little loving light on.
Kiss her once, kiss her twice to keep the night on.
Leave a light, leave a little loving light on.
Kiss her once, kiss her twice to keep the night on.

What the hell am I doing here.
What do I deserve.
I’m breaking into photographs.
I’m digging in the earth.

Take me to the mountain top.
Take me to the bay.
I’ve been here to hell and back.
Earth spinning backwards for a day.
Digging my own graveyard.
For all my deadly thoughts and dreams.
Slowly choking my own red heart.
So I can give myself to thee.

Leave a light, leave a little loving light on.
Kiss her once, kiss her twice to keep the night on.
Leave a light, leave a little loving light on.
Kiss her once, kiss her twice to keep the night on.
