Lately The Kills’ female half, Alison Mosshart, has been busy with the Dead Weather’s 2009 and 2010 albums. But she and musical partner Jamie Hince announced that they finished the followup to 2008’s Midnight Boom earlier this month. (There’s a good reason for the stretch between albums: Back in 2009 The Guardian said that Hince’s girlfriend Kate Moss threw his laptop into a swimming pool, resulting in the loss of six new Kills tracks.) The new album is called Blood Pressures, and first taste “Satellite” is fuller and crunchier than their previous work. I like how the beat sort of sounds like someone gasping for air, as well as the harmonized chorus. Listen:
Blood Pressures is out 4/5 via Domino.
