Watch: The Kills’ ‘Satellite’ skips out on paying for dinner

As Jack White endeavors on his next musical projects (besides the now-defunct White Stripes, Dead Weather cohort Alison Mosshart has already moved on to hers. She’s taken back up with The Kills, and she along with bandmate Jamie Hince are prepping the release of the rock act’s next “Blood Pressures.”

Today sees the drop of that album’s first music video, for “Satellites,” its first single. In it, Mosshart and Hince ominously drive cars and mischievously skip out on paying for their diner meals. But there’s definitely more to the story to than that, honey bunny. The dark-eyed singer can be seen writhing, at times, in the backseat (food poisoning, perhaps?). B-roll of car crashes and secret identities flash in her eyes. They hit what looks like the English countryside and somehow end up in a California coastal winter.

It’s very bizarre and spooky and I like it. Personally, I could only listen to Dead Weather for five to six songs at a time, but “Satellite” — I could hear this stuff all day. It’s crunchy yet contained, with Mosshart giving some restraint to her powerful caterwaul.

“Blood Pressures” is out on April 5 via Domino; The Kills’ last “Midnight Boom” dropped in 2008. The band already has an extensive tour laid out, below.
