Watch: The Kills Share New Video For “Heart Of A Dog”

With the follow up to 2011’s Blood Pressure dropping on June 3rd, garage duo The Kills have now teased fans with a second video clip from the forthcoming LP.

Heart of A Dog continues with the classic Kills formula. Allison Mossheart’s slow burning vocals echo throughout the mix while Jamie Hince’s distorted rock chords sit unopposed, front and centre. Underscored by a booming drum pattern, the track showcases the pair’s talent for drawing forth unmitigated rock swagger from their stripped back band dynamic. “I’m loyal/ I’ve got the heart of a dog,” Mosshart growls, perhaps reflecting on the pair’s longstanding collaboration.

Shot with the help of veteran music director Sophie Muller, the visuals feature a collage of imagery taken from the pair’s galavant around LA. Half eaten nachos and backflipping over cars abound as general rock antics ensue. Providing the literal take on the dog motif, there are more than few dogs featured throughout. Again there’s a clear focus on the easygoing nature of the pair’s relationship, which has no doubt contributed to their longstanding collaboration.

For Australian fans looking to catch the band live, The Kills will be taking to the stage on the first night of Splendour in the Grass on Friday July 22.
