Polaroid Kiss is a collective musical group internationally based in Dublin, London and Los Angeles, officially consisting of founding member Brandun Reed (Record Producer), Steve Hewitt (Placebo), Kevin Drake (Thirty Seconds to Mars), and Jon Fugler (Fluke).[unreliable source?]


Shortly after relocating to Stockholm, Sweden in 2009, Brandun had renewed artistic inspiration for the sound and ideals of Polaroid Kiss, and swiftly invited former Sneaker Pimps co-lyricist Ian Pickering to assist in lyrical and thematic depth.[1][unreliable source?] The duo began composing and demoing much new material. [2] Among the guest-artist and collaborators known to be participating in recording sessions for their debut album include Perry Bamonte (The Cure), Martin Skold (Kent), James Chapman (Maps), Tim Saul (Portishead), Alex Swift (Massive Attack), Steve Kilbey (The Church), Howie B, John Fryer and Hanin Elias (Atari Teenage Riot).[2][3] The band confirmed via their official Facebook page on February 13, 2014 that Tom Baker would be mastering their debut album and that Reuben Wu of the band Ladytron would be joining Tomato Design co-founder Graham Wood as co-art director.
