The Kills 10 year anniversary: The Last Goodbye

You may remember from numerous posts like this one and this one, that I have a slight girl crush on Alison Mosshart of The Kills and after seeing this, it's only further confirmed. Their recent single from album, Blood Pressures; The Last Goodbye is a far cry from their regular sound but I like it. The nostalgic piano and haunting tones of Mosshart's voice on the track are simple and evoke emotion.

On to the video. Actress Samantha Morton directed the piece set in an old photobooth and filmed to the style of an old 35mm in black and white. The slightly innocent, uncomplicated track is echoed in the video and it captures the duo's ten year collabouration and friendship.



  1. This so different to their usual stuff and is it just me or does Alison have a Helena Bonham Carter thing going on?!

  2. I am also slightly in love with Alison Mosshart. Today I finally bought the perfect Alison-esque sheer leopard print shirt that I saw her wearing way back during the No Wow tour when I first fell for her (Thanks Urban Outfitters). What a lovely track and great video :)
