Fans of The Kills will take delight in the premiere of a new short film, Blood Pressures, named after their newest album on Domino Records (read our review). Launched today on IFC.com, the film features the duo of Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart during making of their latest album. 

 

Comprised of exclusive footage, mini interviews and live performances, the film was directed by Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern for thirtytwo. Watch the video below, featuring some remarkably intimate musical and personal moments around the band's descriptions of their musical progression and the making of Blood Pressures.

"You voice is quite booming," Alison tells Jamie during a moment of levity. "Quite manly and booming," she adds playfully.

 

Hince's basic response, in the most masculine of tones, "I know," is indeed booming.

 

Well worth the 11-minute investment, I'd say.
