THE SWEET KILL – “CLOSER”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE MUSIC PREMIERE
Power is “Closer” than breathing, nearer than hands and feet. Igniting the hidden spark within, merging with another and becoming stronger is the message of “Closer”. This dark and gothic, post-punk anthem swoons in the shadows serenaded by a velvety deep baritone voice. Describing the mysterious journey of this powerful union ricocheting inside an unsuspecting society, together they keep their secrets “Closer” to their soul. There may be struggles but since they were created from pure power they powerfully transcend worldly limitations and go beyond. “Closer describes how this is possible.
The Sweet Kill is a one-man darkwave band whose gothic atmospheric anthems and introspective lyrics leave you sobbing in your pillow. The diviner of this millenarian angst is Pete Mills, who writes, sings, performs and produces all of The Sweet Kill’s material. Driven by dark synths, minimal guitar and masculine bass, multi-instrumentalist Mills sets the stage for toxic romance and melancholic sorrow echoing the laments of The Cure and symphonic production of Nine Inch Nails.
The Sweet Kill’s latest release “Closer” from the forthcoming album Darkness showcases Mills’ devotion to his artistry with the purpose to inspire those afflicted with the lows of life.
