Draining Kiss – Blood Is Thicker

An echo of the 80s: "Blood Is Thicker" by Draining Kiss

Draining Kiss - Blood Is Thicker"Draining Kiss" takes us on a jour­ney into the depths of syn­thes­ised pop with his latest track "Blood Is Thicker", which also pays homage to the dark sounds of the 80s. The song, part of the 5‑track EP of the same name, is char­ac­ter­ised by a skil­ful fusion of mel­an­chol­ic under­tone and indus­tri­al vibe, remin­is­cent of the legendary "Depeche Mode" (of the early days).

The synth sounds in "Blood Is Thicker" skil­fully hov­er between eeri­ness and nos­tal­gia while radi­at­ing an ana­logue warmth. What is par­tic­u­larly impress­ive is how "Draining Kiss" man­ages to make this sound con­tem­por­ary and yet deeply rooted in the era of the synth-pop her­oes. The cov­er art­work and the visu­al style of the song clearly pay trib­ute to Depeche Mode's "Enjoy The Silence", which only rein­forces the nos­tal­gic mood.

Lyrically, "Blood Is Thicker" chal­lenges the listen­er with a com­bin­a­tion of cold long­ing and an intense, almost palp­able dis­son­ance. The repe­ti­tion of the line "Blood is thick­er" serves as a haunt­ing refrain that both emphas­ises the lyr­ic­al depth of the track and rein­forces its hyp­not­ic quality.

Lyrics of "Draining Kiss – Blood Is Thicker"

This cold­ness and yearning
The dis­son­ance is burning
You're put­ting this between us
My per­son­al Jesus

Pursuing a vis­cer­al feeling
Forbidding all chance of healing
You sit­ting there in silence
Is tan­tamount to violence

Don't scorn me now
Take my hand and dance with me tonight
It's not just physical
It's chem­ic­al by design
Now look at me like it's the last time

Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than
Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than

Perpetual state of dreaming
Forever a selfish being
This toss­ing and turning
Your body is burning

Don't scorn me now
Take my hand and dance with me tonight
It's not just physical
It's chem­ic­al by design
Now look at me and take the
Silence
Silence
Silence
Silence

Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than
Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than
Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than
Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than

Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than
Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than
Blood is thicker
Is thicker
Is thick­er than
Blood is thicker
Is thick­er is
Thicker than water
