Francis Aud Drops Video for “Codeine Kiss”

NYC funk-pop artist Francis Aud just released his new infectious new single and music video, “Codeine Kiss,” and it’s just what the doctor ordered when it comes to feeling good, letting out all of that pent-up summer energy.  “Codeine Kiss” is what you get when a summer bop shows up late to the party celebrating the start of autumn. Jam-packed with psychedelic vocals, cheeky guitar, a thumping baseline, and a spicy horn arrangement, “Codeine Kiss” arrives just at the nick of time to fight any quarantine blues. As Francis explains, “It’ll definitely help you do something with all of that “bootyshake-energy” you’ve got stored up and help you groove your way out of this year and into the next.”

For the music video, Francis puts a fun twist on the feel-good, funk meets pop song. The quirky music video still portrays the catchy, love song story, but showcases his comical love for his dog instead. This track delivers a catchy hook, a-little-too-on-the-nose lyrics, thumping bass line, and a shamelessly 80s synthesizer solo to round out the whole shebang.

“Codeine Kiss” is Francis Aud’s fifth release of 2020, and the first song from his discography co-produced by Aud himself alongside long-time collaborator and troublemaker Zach Golden (Anthony Ramos, Jasmine Cephas Jones). The track was mixed by Ryan Gilligan and mastered by Joe Lambert. Follow him at FrancisAud.com. Download the song HERE and watch the video below:
