The Sweet Kill take us on an emotional, ying-yang themed roller coaster experience in their cutting edge, Jamie Mitchell directed video, “Soul Satellite”
Embracing the duality of dark and light, “Soul Satellite” thematically tackles the jumping off point into the unknown from the desperation of change. With an unrelenting 808 groove supporting dark wave guitars and synths, Pete Mills dwells from the depths below into a soaring, sexy lead vocal delivery. Press play and beam away.
“Standing on a freeway overpass, hovering between hopeless and hope, I stepped back from the edge, surrendering to the love that never left…. music. With addiction, a stint of success and the suicide of a band mate I rode my demons with spurs spawning The Sweet Kill.”
The diviner of this millenarian angst is lead singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Pete Mills. His black-hearted voice of alienation soars over unrelenting 808 grooves, post punk synths, artful dark wave guitars and bulletproof production.
The Sweet Kill’s self-titled debut refracts the struggle of the human condition in a beautifully unsettling fashion. Echoing influences of Nine Inch Nails, Joy Division and The Cure, Pete assembled a powerhouse production team including mixer Dave “Rave” Ogilvie (Marilyn Manson), co-producer Voli (Bebe Rexha) and drummer Darren King (Mutemath).
