A road trip to the English coast is easily conceived to be a dreary expedition. In The Kills'
most recent video, Alison and Jamie cruise through the country in their vintage Rolls Royce. The realism and organization of the video closely resemble the 60's French noir films. Mosshart is an impeccable recreation of Anna Karina and Hince mirrors the great Godard himself. The song, "Satellite", is a piece of their fourth album, Blood Pressures
, which is due for release in April. Lo-fi and minimalist techniques are the duo's forte, and their newest album appears to encapsulate the essence of their beautiful grit.
