Merging the swagger of Manchester rock predecessors with some hints of progressive rock, The Kill Van Kulls have melded together an indie rock that might fit better in NYC where the namesake tidal strait Kill Van Kull exists.
Geographic interests (and the related historic interests) aside regarding the strait, The Kill Van Kulls have produced an easy listening sort of rock that remains imperfect around the edges. Here on Alive, we have a song that never wanders outside its pleasant comfort zone. It knows, as well as a song can know, a pretty foolish notion admitted, but alas, what it is. The sound is self-assured, an aspect that bodes well for The Kill Van Kulls.
Their EP, Songs for Sinners, is recently out.
