The Kills are known for their sound and
they do not disappoint. Their massive
drum machines are featured in almost
every song, and in “Nail In My Coffin,” they
use a ping pong ball for a different effect
that really shows how innovative they are
In “Wild Charms,” Jamie Hince takes
over with a calmer, gentler feel, almost as a
break in the album before Mosshart takes
a deep breath and yelps and snarls through
the rest of the album.
On one of the most soulful tracks, “The
Last Goodbye,” Mosshart says, “I cannot
rely on a half-hearted love that will never
be whole.” It’s soft and quiet while she
realizes she needs to get over a relationship
that has been one-sided all along.
Blood Pressures is a great album, but
nothing really jumped out at me. I wanted
to learn something new through their
music that I didn’t know before.
