The Kills unveiled “Satellite,” the lead single from their upcoming fourth studio effort, Blood Pressures, today. With an opening that sounds like the unwitting menace of an MRI machine and sonics that recall the gritty glee of 2005′s No Wow, “Satellite” is more polished (albeit crunchy and sexy-like as we’ve all grown to expect) and melodic than previous lead singles we’ve seen from the London duo, but the addictive tune which features the REV Gospel Collective will burrow its way into your grit pop-loving subconscious soon enough.
