About The Living Kills

"Sherman and company aren’t rehashing 1960s/70s psyche rock, they are taking their influences and adding to them." - Innocent Words "[The] songs explore B-movie and horror-related themes previously championed by the Cramps, and the arrangements buzz with the energy of the 13th Floor Elevators, Doors and UK Freakbeat." - Hyperbolium "A buzzing, clamoring wreck of noise with sweetly straightforward melodies soaring overhead. Enjoy the howl of “Angels Without Faces.” - NBC New York “These New York rocker's newest album features creeping organ, tons of noise and a great mix of ’60s guitar nostalgia and modern shoe-gaze.” - Spinner “The Living Kills look, on the surface, like any other New York indie band waiting for its big break into the mainstream, but after one listen to “Angels Without Faces,” it becomes evident that’s not the case. Organs, synthesizers, ticking clocks and smoky male-and-female vocals make the group stand out from its peers. Merrill Sherman moved to NYC and found Jennifer Bassett, Brenden Beu and Yancy Sabenicio to start the Living Kills, and by using only ’60s/’70s equipment, Faceless Angels (Past Futures) possesses new yet surprisingly nostalgic tracks. - Magnet Magazine “There’s a splendor inside ‘Angels Without Faces’ that makes it distinguishable amongst the bands you just come to know. The intro is profound, determined and vigorous. I remember when I first watched the video for Oasis ‘D’Know What I Mean?’ it left me a similar impression: the flamboyance in noise. It’s as though The Living Kills, within the time of only a debut EP and this, have piled up a portfolio of confidence. It’s not a light bulb upon your head that goes “This is the correct chord for this!” How the song presents itself is menacing, challenging and of course dainty. The shoe-gaze inside discovers itself pretty early on. Merrill Sherman, the lead vocalist’s voice is as neutral as Jim Reid, not emphasizing on a single part of his uneventful sonnet. Songs on Faceless Angels, The Living Kills’ full length are reportedly about childhood fears and embracing them with the help of late 60s equipment. Also a drugged up demo video of this plowing psych-rock tune is found here! I enjoyed it a lot to be honest.” - Ghost FM “Listening to this Brooklyn band feels like an eerie dream, like there’s a ghost lingering in their psychedelic rock. It’s unlikely that any of the members of The Living Kills lived through the 60s, yet their music can be easily confused as something from that era. Many of today’s up-and-coming bands, from Echo Park to Brooklyn, sound like the 60s, but not like this. The Living Kills sounds like The Doors and Jefferson Airplane. Their music is spooky and poetic, like an early Tim Burton movie.” - BeatCrave.com “These New York rocker’s newest album features creeping organ, tons of noise and a great mix of ’60s guitar nostalgia and modern shoe-gaze.” -AOL Music/Spinner “Illuminated on stage by projections of vintage Muppets and cult films, The Living Kills play echo-y, strong and plowing psychedelic rock’n’roll. -The Deli New EP available now! http://amzn.to/1wwYc2z http://bit.ly/1zo0u45
