With all the crazy genre-hopping music being released recently, it’s refreshing to hear a good example of pure, hard-hitting indie rock. Three years after releasing their sophomore record, Midnight Boom, The Kills are back with the same raw, soulful sound with their new record, Blood Pressures. Listening to this record, it’s hard to imagine that it was made by just a couple of friends who met while staying in the same hotel with their bands at the time. The duo creates a wide variety of sounds on their third effort: from raw, grainy guitar riffs to softer ballads with tender vocals. The record opens up with my personal favorite, Future Starts Slow, and its hard hitting drum intro welcomes you into an enjoyable set of nothing but 100% indie rock.
