The Kills

by BMG Music

The Kills, the Anglo-American duo of VV, aka Alison Mosshart (guitar, vocals) and Hotel, aka Jamie Hince (drums, vocal, guitar), will release their sophomore release No Wow, March 8th on Rough Trade/RCA.

No Wow, the follow-up to 2002’s Keep on Your Mean Side, is teeming with some of the most alluring love-hate dichotomies ever put to tape. The duo’s chemistry is evident in every lyric and every fuzzed out guitar chord. The album gnaws at you in the best possible way, like an itchy sweater of libidinal bliss. The first single “The Good Ones” is raw and sultry with lyrics adapted from a diary entry. Ahh, but whose diary? Listen and decide for yourself.

If you thought I was exaggerating about the duo’s chemistry, check out the video for “The Good Ones” (Hot, hot, hot)!!!!

The band will be performing at SXSW in March and will follow with a full US tour.
