The Kills - 'The Last Goodbye'
A raggedly sentimental chanson
The Kills are great and all, but they’re not a band to really move 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 Minority Report fame.
