Biography

The Living Kills are a four-piece psychotronic, psychedelic garage rock band from Brooklyn, NY. The band released their debut 7 inch, “You’ll Miss Me Most,” on Krave. WNYC likened the band to the Velvet Underground and noted that quartet “plays the kind of dark, psychedelic rock that sounds like it should’ve drifted out of the windows of the Factory in its ’60s heyday.” Their first full-length “Faceless Angels” was released on Past/Futures Records on August 16, 2011 and charted at #95 on the CMJ Music Charts in October 2011.

“The Living Kills look, on the surface, like any other New York indie band waiting for its big break into the mainstream, but after one listen to “Angels Without Faces,” it becomes evident that’s not the case. Organs, synthesizers, ticking clocks and smoky male-and-female vocals make the group stand out from its peers. Merrill Sherman moved to NYC and found Jennifer Bassett, Brenden Beu and Yancy Sabenicio to start the Living Kills, and by using only ’60s/’70s equipment, Faceless Angels (Past Futures) possesses new yet surprisingly nostalgic tracks. - Magnet Magazine

“These New York rocker’s newest album features creeping organ, tons of noise and a great mix of ’60s guitar nostalgia and modern shoe-gaze.” -Spinner

“Like dutiful musical offspring of the Velvet Underground, the Living Kills play the kind of dark, psychedelic rock that sounds like it should’ve drifted out of the windows of the Factory in its ’60s heyday.
