The Kills returned to late-night television on Tuesday to perform their new single “List Of Demands (Reparations)” on The Late Show, which you can watch below.
The song was written and originally recorded by hip-hop artist Saul Williams.
The performance was electric, with Alison Mosshart channeling her inner Jagger in high-heeled boots as she belted out Williams’ anthem of love and revolution. Jamie Hince swayed next to her with his 1966 Gretsch Corvette Silver Duke in hand, thumbing and strumming the slowed-down bluesier treatment of the tune.
The British-American punk outfit recently wrapped up a run of U.S. shows and are set to embark on a tour of Europe in June, with three more U.S. shows slated for August (see dates below).
In a recent interview with Loud And Quiet, Mosshart talked about her formative years, saying that her style has always been influenced by skateboarding and punk rock. “I was not a good skateboarder, but I loved it. It was the culture from when I was 7 or 8. It was what got me into everything. Music was involved and art was involved. I loved the artwork on decks and I loved all the punk rock music that went with the imagery.”
