The Sweet Kill continue to put out tracks that are emotional rollercoasters, and nothing captures this the best than his latest installment (and today’s premiere) is called “The Girl Who Kissed The World Goodbye”. The melody and lyrics have a bittersweet and slightly mournful taste, but the track itself has an uplifting beat, creating a sense of nostalgia or remembering ones first love.
The purpose of the LOVE & DEATH EP is to provoke conversation that questions and exposes the social stigma attached to the disease of addiction. The topic of addiction and abandonment were covered in the first single “War”, and “The Girl Who Kissed The World Goodbye” centers on the feelings of loss and the thought of never communicating with a person again after you lose them.
“My last band ended with a tragic event where my songwriting partner committed suicide. The Sweet Kill is a tribute to our bond, music and her short life on this planet. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss her and our connection. The question this song proposes is when do we know when it is too late? Years have gone by and I can’t express how much gratitude for all of the good/bad times we’ve traveled. What was will never be, and now it’s too late, rest in peace. When a life comes to an end by fate or by one’s own hand I can’t help but wonder where she is now. In spite of her not being here, she is still the motivation of what my heart is trying to tell the world. I loved her then and I still love her now.” – Pete Mills
