More so than The Black Keys or the now-defunct White Stripes, The Kills do blues-rock with pure, unadulterated attitude. The duo hit the collective consciousness hard with 2008’s Midnight Boom, with catchy songs like “U.R.A. Fever” and “Sour Cherry” soundtracking countless TV shows. After a brief hiatus—during which vocalist Alison Mosshart prowled the world’s stages with The Dead Weather while her Kills partner Jamie Hince hid from paparazzi with then fiancée, now wife Kate Moss—The Kills return with Blood Pressures, an album that fleshes out Midnight Boom’s hollow cheeks. It dissipates some of that all-important attitude, too.
