Fresh off the heels of their Coachella set, the Kills have dropped their newest single and video Heart of a Dog from their newest album Ash & Ice out June 3rd via Domino. We’ve previously heard their leading track, Doing it to Death, and the video along with the track was a cinematic yet macabre vibe to it but there’s no denying that Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart are the absolute coolest.
Heart of a Dog is slithery from start to finish, full of brimming guitar lines and heavy bass rhythm that’s about remaining loyal to each other with lyrics like, “I get lost but I always come around, it’s a strange fear allows me to be found, I’m loyal…. I got the heart of a dog.”
The video is sexy without the overt sexual symbolism or objectification. It’s kind of like a day-in-the-life kind of thing with Mosshart and Hince, their partnership is ride or die (which is what we all want whether romantic or not).
They posted this on their official Facebook…
We are very very especially pleased to release our new music video for Heart of A Dog!
It was shot all day and into the night in Los Angeles by our dear friend, the tremendous talent, Sophie Muller. We love this video. We love it because it’s fucking fun. Muscle cars and backflips. Palms trees and cacti. Dogs and dice. Neon and sunshine. We hope you love it as much as we do.
VROOM VROOM. Love, The Kills.
