Headlights deliver a pop masterpiece with its debut album.
Kill Them with Kindness is alive with a pulse that beats with shoegaze spirit. There is a synthesis of keyboards and guitars, of vocals, of ethereal programming and huge drums; a solidification of lyrics centered on the paradoxes and ups and downs we all experience in life. Through its veins runs the lifeblood of an
indie-pop band not afraid of anything at all.
In this world of stun or be
stunned, by the time Kill Them with Kindness shimmers to its close, you realize not only how remarkable
the album is, but how rare it is for a debut LP to yield such dramatic results.
After recording basic tracks with Kristian Riley (Decibully, Maritime) at Bionic Studios in Milwaukee, members of Headlights applied the finishing touches at the band's farmhouse just north of their hometown of Champaign, Illinois.
Kill Them With Kindness follows two EPs, a tour-only live recording, and a split 7" with Arts & Crafts
band The Most Serene Republic.
