Just when you think winter blues and divisive politics have completely sapped your will to go on, The Kills reappear like the true rock & roll saviors they are. On the new-wavey new single “Whirling Eye” (from 2016 album Ash & Ice), Alison Mosshart gets incisively philosophical, observing “What you want is hard to find,” and posing the question, “Do you need what I got?” Yes. Alison, we really do.
The spirited video, directed by Sophie Muller (who has worked with Gwen Stefani, The Killers and Blur) shows Mosshart and partner-in-mischief Jamie Hince grooving in the streets and rocking out underground. Because, you know, what else would they be doing?
“Get the vision / Get the vision / Come on!,” Alison implores.
We got it!
(N.B. The Kills will be playing five dates in California in March before heading to Mexico and The UK.)
