A song a day: The Kills - Future Starts Slow

I was never the biggest fan of the Kills and actually preferred Alison Mosshart in the Dead Weather. There was something unhinged about her performance in that band which was no doubt egged on by having to compete with Jack White to be the centre of the attention (until he started producing the Insane Clown Posse). However, this song cuts though my music ;loving soul like a rusty blade - great fucking lyrics and that riff, oh my lord, so simple but it rolls around my brain for hours and hours. The Kills normally sing about the menace and darkness but this time it sounds frighteningly real. --

  1. Completely agree. I wasn't a fan at all until the newest record, and it seems like they finally found the right mix of menace and joy.
