Kisses, the L.A. dance-pop duo consisting of Jesse Kivel and Zinzi Edmunson, is planning a short west coast tour this March. They released their last album, The Heart Of The Nightlife, in November 2010 on This Is Music.

The lovey-dovey name is the group’s name is a nod to 70s disco legend Alec R. Costandinos’ project “Love and Kisses,” and Costandinos, whose nfluence shows in the music, was a family friend of Kivel’s. Kisses, is light and airy but tinged with nostalgia and a little bit of regret, sort of what it’s like to be a new college graduate and out of work.
