Kills BirdsLondon Calling 2022, Friday
American rock band Kills Birds approach their songs with an intensity that’s so tangible it feels like the stakes are near life and death. Fronted by rock singer Nina Ljeti, their performances are visceral and cathartic, with guitarist Jacob Loeb’s blistering riffs and Fielder Thomas’ pummeling basslines. Kills Birds formed in 2017 as a songwriting outlet for Ljeti and Loeb. As soon as they found their spark they enlisted Thomas along with drummer Bosh Rothman to round out the group. Their first full-length album, Kills Birds captures their grunge-inspired sound and Ljeti’s unflinching lyrics with songs like ‘High’, ‘Ow’ and ‘Worthy Girl’. Married, their follow-up is a representation of everything that they are. It’s a document of a band pushing their musical chemistry to new heights.
