Midnight Boom sees the Kills - rock's most enigmatic duo - offering their most stunning album yet. Their first album, Keep on Your Mean Side, won widespread critical acclaim, and gained them their ever passionate and devoted cool cult following. when the band returned in 2005 with No Wow, they returned with an edgier, sharper sound that pushed rock 'n' roll boundaries, whilst maintaining their strong ties to the art world. The production on new album 'Midnight Bloom', featuring beats and studio smarts from spank rock' producer Alex Epton aka Armani xxxchange, combined with Alison's confidently teasing vocals, creates a truly forward thinking, fresh new sound for the band. Taking inspiration from 'Pizza Pizza Daddio', a sixties documentary about kids in inner-city schools in the USA, the Kills' Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart started building rhythms influenced by the children's dark playground songs, on an old school hand-punched mpc-60 hip hop drum sequencer. The results are shown in some of the hypnotic original tracks on the album, like 'Cheap and Cheerful'.
