For their most recent single, The Kills re-wired the circuits of Saul Williams‘ “List of Demands (Reparations)” to create a wounded, volcanic, and urgent anthem. The b-side, a dazzling cover of Peter Tosh‘s “Steppin’ Razor,” is today highlighted via a remix delivered by Kingstons’ Equiknoxx Music.

The greatest duos teeter on the cliff’s edge between chaos and equilibrium, salvation and obliteration, 10,000-watt voltage and gothic darkness. For a decade and a half, The Killshave mastered that savage balance, unleashing artful detonation and subtle vocal and guitar violence. That’s five albums and four EPs where Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince reimagined the possibilities of modern duality-alchemizing garage rock, punk, and blues into smoke clouds, psychic carnage, and a smoldering nocturnal slink. A northwest passage between Outkast and Suicide.
