After their latest summer hit and first release on Kitsuné “Elouisa”, The Swiss are now presenting their new single, also via the famous Parisien label. Another great EP crammed full of good vibes, powerful riffs, efficient keyboards and catchy melodies.
This new release features two original songs, the heady « Kiss To Kiss », held by Roxane Ashley Aiston great and neat vocal line and the powerful and mind-blowing « Golden Century ».

Thanks to the Band
Lucius Y. / Kitsuné
We went to same primary / high school. I (Tony) sold luke a drum kit and we started to hang out more trough the same tastes in music. We used to jam at lunch times in our schools music room and played together in our first band. After high school we began as the swiss. We played a lot of gigs in our home town of Adelaide mainly jam slots. That’s how the Swiss was born.
