YourMum is thrilled to announce our first show in the Year of the Rooster: THE KILLS, live at Macpherson Stadium on February 28th.
Fusing Alison Mosshart’s stunning primal vocals alongside Jamie Hince’s cooler-than-cool guitar attacks, the band shot to global recognition during the Garage Rock explosion of the early 00’s, and have remained an iconic presence ever since. It has been a career which has spanned fifteen years and five albums: ‘Keep On Your Mean Side’, ‘No Wow’, ‘Midnight Boom’, ‘Blood Pressures’ and last year’s ‘Ash & Ice’. Each LP a restless, reckless enigmatic art statement bristling with tension, anxiety, sex, unstudied cool and winking ennui. Their sound of blues roots with a pop punch providing an uncommon combination of intense credibility and accessibility. It is the rarest of popularities which has seen the duo adopted both by the mainstream (their music used by all manner of film, tv and advertising synchs from House to 90210 to Fendi ads) as well as equally beloved by the trendy, hipster elite. Moreover providing inspiration to countless other artists, enamoured with their sound, style and character.
