THE KILLS aka Jamie Hince and Alisson Mosshart have shared another music video off their upcoming LP Ash & Ice. Siberian Nights follows the previously released Heart Of A Dog and Doing It To Death and the video was directed by actor Giovanni Ribisi. Written by Hince, during a solo journey on the infamous Trans-Siberian Express it was Risi’s concept to transport that frosty feeling into a music video as he explains:
‘I’ve always looked at videos from a cultural perspective. Whether it’s about a single, cultural event or some facet of the band. Over the course of making this video, what was there evolved into being something more abstract. However, during its early conception, I was enamored with a John Houston film called The Misfits. Ernst Haas was there during the making of it, taking photographs. His pictures were some of the many references for the video.
The Kills have always been one of my favorite bands. Their music is undeniable. It was a pleasure and a privilege for me to work on this.’
The new THE KILLS album is set for a release on June the 3rd via Domino Records / Rough Trade.
