Crystal’s Team Pick: Behind The Scenes With The Kills

Last month we got amped up about Blood Pressures, the brilliant new album from the Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart duo, The Kills (buy).

The band have followed up with a short behind-the-scenes film that’s required viewing for any Kills enthusiast. For 11 minutes Hince and Mosshart humbly discuss the making of the Blood Pressures and also the band dynamics, their insights ranging from the amusing (“there are some songs on there”) to the adorable (she’s my sister, I’d do anything for her”). The video features some sweet acoustic jamming as well as plenty of visual and aural moments that reaffirm the band’s status as cool as fuck. Enjoy.

  1. Blood Pressure has been on repeat in my car since it came out- it’s one of few albums that I can listen to every song on without skipping tracks. I love The Kills.
    Anyone else notice Jamie’s hands? He has the hands of a longtime guitarist.
