Yesterday I was lucky to see The Kills last-minute at a sold out gig of their Ash & Ice tour. After listening to them for years, I was glad I could catch up with their new, ever so catchy rock songs such as Doing It To Death, Impossible Tracks and Bitter Fruit. But my all time favourite is U R A Fever.
To me their music feels very authentic and raw but with a high melodic vibe, the kind of tunes that make my heart feel wild and untamable in the atmosphere of the night. Similar to the feeling I get with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club or The Black Angels (yes, black and black of course).
Singer and guitarist Alison Mosshart (who's also in The Dead Weather) left a great impression on me. She's possibly the coolest female musician I ever saw performing on stage. So yep, major girlcrush here.
To me, the best gigs are the ones where you get sucked into a state of feeling high and on fire at the same time, and it lasts from the first second until the last guitar stroke and even hours after that. This was one of those gigs. Not a single disappointing song, dancing all the way through and wondering if you can ever feel any happier than right in that moment.
There's something about indie rock music that makes me want to become a singer too someday. Anyone care to start a band?
