The Kills
last pleasured our ears back in 2008 with Midnight Boom and now they’ve brought their brooding back on their 4th studio album, living up to it’s title by getting our Blood Pressures soaring.

The album is a sleazy and sassy offering, soaked with fuzzy basslines, dirty electronics and heavy blues-rock guitar riffs, while still keeping a few captivating pop hooks. It opens strongly with Future Starts Slow and ominous single Satellite, through to the onslaught of Heart Is A Beating Drum and menacing Nail In My Coffin. Alluring single DNA is a highlight in which Alison Mosshart’s gorgeous vocals invokes the seductive prowess reminiscent of a dark Debbie Harry.

With Blood Pressures, all songs nicely contrast and compliment each other to make a layered and complex album where The Kills certainly kill it by never sounding so good!

The Kills take over the Anson Rooms on Thursday June 2nd.
Tickets £14.75 – here.
