I’ve liked every song The Kills have ever released but I’ve never really delved into their albums or back catalogue.. until now. Their latest release ‘Ash & Ice’ is amazing. The whole album has been on repeat for me lately, but one track in particular sticks in my mind, Black Tar.
I love Alison’s voice, her vocal on this track has an echo to it that gives it an almost haunting quality. It grabs you and sticks with you.. the melody and guitar work is also great. It’s a lesson in taking it back to basics.. take a listen..
