The Kills love to transform their artsy blues rock into matching grainy, noir-esque images, seen most recently in their video for “Satellite.” That dark and murky sensibility is on full display in Blood Pressures—no, not the duo’s latest full-length release but their eponymously-named short documentary, which premiered today on Over B-roll of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince writing and playing in the studio intercut with clips from “Satellite,” Mosshart and Hince hold a candid conversation with each other about their new album, their 11-year-long collaboration, and overall musings about their musical careers, leading up to Hince pondering, “Why have we carried on this long?” As Blood Pressures the album debuted in the Billboard Top 40 last month with some glowing reviews from critics and media outlets, it appears that however The Kills have carried on, it’s working.
