"Avalanche", a single from Kick To Kill

With a throbbing bass, urgent drumming, searching synths, chiming, angular guitars and baritone vocals, "Avalanche" captivates from its opening notes.  The song is the new single from Glasgow's Kick to Kill, and is the group's second single in about six months.  What listening to the singles, and especially "Avalanche", tells me is that this is an exciting band, capable of writing their ticket to the top.  The sound is big--Depeche Mode/Joy Division big.  Listen to the single, and feel the energy.  It has the unique ability to be in your face, but sensual  and danceable.

The single is comprises two tracks, "Avalanche" as heard above and a remix of the track. It is released today.  And if you like it, note that the band plans to release an LP later this year.

Kick to Kill are Dave Cook (vocals / guitar), Harris Hill (synth), Lewis Macaulay (drums / vocals), and Ewen Shearer (bass).  Their label is Glasgow's Flowers In The Dustbin, about which you will read more here in the future.

Last November's release, "Black Kisses" --
