As the Kills took to the Big Apple stage on Sunday (June 8), the sun started to creep under clouds. The audible long time fans cheered for the rockers to start their set, as frontwoman Alison Mosshart wore her signature bleached blonde hair, jean vest, and patterned bulky shirt. There was not one, but four drummers, two on each side of the stage, with each pair interweaving drum parts throughout the set, part of the theatrics. The band surged into opener “U R A Fever,” as Mosshart did her best to satisfy the crowd, singing “I am a fever, I am a fever, I ain’t born typical.”
The sinister group then launched into tune ‘Future Starts Slow” off of their 2011 release Blood Pressures album, as Mosshart cooed “You can swing, you can fly.” This tune, accentuated by an exceptionally hook-y guitar part, set the tone for the rest of the broody set, as the band didn’t bother much with talking.
