It’s been three years since ‘Midnight Boom’ wowed critics and fans alike, but The Kills – Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart - are back with a new studio album, ‘Blood Pressures’ which is coming out on Domino on April 4th 2011.
On The Kill’s fourth album, their trademark sounds - the razor sharp guitars, urgent rhythms, and sexually charged lyricism - are present and in place, but this time around they’re bolstered by the bands embrace of a fuller sound, which led to more adventurous studio sessions. Making a break from the sparse, skeletal sound that epitomized the jagged compositions that made up ‘Midnight Boom’, their new songs are more complex creatures created with heavier instrumentation and epic harmonies.
For the sessions that became Blood Pressures, Jamie and Alison returned to Key Club Studios, Michigan where they reunited with Midnight Boom engineers Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins. Produced by Jamie Hince, the album was mixed in London by Tom Elmhirst.
For fans of the street hassle swagger and sass that has come to be associated with The Kills, it’s all still alive and well in their new material, but with an added depth and thoughtfulness which is undoubtedly reflected in the, at times, frankly heartbreaking lyrics. The Kills haven’t disposed of their edgy rock identity, they’ve merely built upon it and created something even more special.
