The Kills – The Last Goodbye
The Kills celebrate their ten year anniversary this poignant and playful video for ‘The Last Goodbye’, taken from their album ‘Blood Pressures’. Directed by the Oscar nominated actress Samantha Morton, who made her directorial feature debut with the critically acclaimed ‘The Unloved’, this is her first music video. Shot in monochrome on crisp, silvery 35mm, the video reflects the beautiful simplicity of the track, with an old-school photo booth providing an intimate backdrop for Mosshart’s intense and heart-warming opening performance followed by a series of touching to-camera poses reflecting the musicians’ longstanding, spirited friendship.

Wikipedia: The Kills
The Kills are an indie rock band formed by American singer Alison Mosshart (“VV”) and British guitarist Jamie Hince (“Hotel”). Their first four albums, Keep On Your Mean Side, No Wow, Midnight Boom, and Blood Pressures, have garnered critical praise. Ash & Ice, their fifth and most recent studio album is set to be released on June 3, 2016. Wanting to cut themselves off from their pasts, Mosshart and Hince renamed themselves “VV” and “Hotel”, respectively. Hince said that he and Mosshart “got drunk one day and named each other off the top of our heads as a stupid romantic ode to the pop art scene.” Later, after each wrote multiple band name ideas on typewriters, Mosshart and Hince decided on a new name, The Kills. Together, they began writing sparse, minimalist songs with the aid of a drum machine.

  1. Very interesting. ‘Spell’ was a staple of British R & B, like The Animals, Georgie Fame, Alan Price. ‘Screaming’ Jay Hawkins was great, ‘Screaming’ Lord Sutch a politician.
