The Kills Expand to Quintet to Play 'Satellite' on 'Conan'


The Kills visited Conan last night to play "Satellite," a reggae-tinged number from their latest album Blood Pressures. The band nearly always perform as a duo, but for this performance, they were backed up by three back up singers, who added depth to the song's wordless chorus. Even still, the main attraction is the tension between Alison Mosshart's soulful vocals and Jamie Hince's super-distorted guitar, which in this song sounds like a blues riff that has gone through a dozen generations of digital degradation.
