The Kills - 'The Last Goodbye'

A raggedly sentimental chanson

The Kills - 'The Last Goodbye'

Album Info

  • Release Date: February 13, 2012
  • Label: Domino
[a]The Kills[/a] are great and all, but they’re not a band to really [i]move[/i] you. They’re too aloof, there’s no emotional gut-punch – until know. ‘The Last Goodbye’ is really very beautiful indeed, a raggedly sentimental chanson that finds Alison Mosshart channelling Marianne Faithfull and Edith Piaf. Be sure to google the mesmerising black-and-white video too, directed by Samantha Morton of [i]Minority Report[/i] fame.
