First Fleet Foxes, now The Kills. Midnight Boom was one of my favorite albums of 2008, so I’m definitely hoping Blood Pressures is on par. Here’s the first listen.

“Satellite” is the first song the band has given to fans to hear and is the perfect introduction to the band’s new studio album, Blood Pressures, the highly anticipated follow-up to their critically acclaimed third album, Midnight Boom. Blood Pressures will be released on Domino on April 5th, 2011.

“Satellite” features Alison’s melancholy vocals enveloping a dub influenced guitar, building to a soaring, swelling chorus with additional vocals contributed by The REV Gospel Collective.
