The Kills+Black Bananas+Viva Viva
Bicontinental indie-rock duo the Kills have a brooding sound and a matching look, something that was recently the subject of a book, Dream and Drive, which captures the group’s lighter and darker sides mixing, shots of the pair at the beach with ones of frontwoman Alison Mosshart looking positively ghoulish in a grainy black-and-white Cure-like shot. When compared to the sparse mixture of garage rock, reggae, and guitar squalls of a song like their recent single “Satellite,” the photos are almost as nuanced as their music.
