Show Preview: The Kills @ l'Olympia tomorrow night

Posted by Sarah / April 29, 2011

Kills,Montreal,DNA,antiquiet,rock,concertIt's been a while since The Kills last swung by Montreal for a live show. Since their last concert here, they have kept busy preparing and releasing a new record, Blood Pressures, still just a few weeks old. The Kills will be at l'Olympia tomorrow night, Saturday April 30th.

It was difficult to say what to expect from the London-based duo as far as this new album is concerned. Still grungy, The Kills are apparently still very much attached to the sense of melodic minimalism that has come to define their style. Though Blood Pressures sometimes strays towards a slightly more Pop-ish sound from time to time, the duo never really allows itself to give in to anything candy-coated. Preferring to loom in the darkness of something raw and sensuous, The Kills produced a record suggesting something more Blues and a bit less Punk. This being said, the fans of the awesome "kick" should still find some satisfaction in the continuing musical efforts of The Kills. There are some truly great songs on Blood Pressures; "Future Starts Slow", "Nail In My Coffin" and "DNA", for instance, remain close to what I've personally always loved about this band. It should be interesting to see what kind of performance will come out of The Kills tomorrow night, at the very least. I, for one, expect and still hope for something really strong, dark, leather-smelling and intoxicating from this band.

I went to that show yesterday night. Really an awesome show. They have an amazing presence onstage, one that can't even be recorded. I was also impressed by Alison's vocals, it's quite rare to see a singer that's even better live than on record. They also had amazing lights and a jaguar-printed background.
