The Kills have been slowly coming back to us, and despite their years long silence, they just want to be your dog. “Heart of A Dog” is a song with its heart on it’s sleeve, a trademark component of Alison Mosshart’s and Jamie Hince’s sonic vibes. Dogs are the ultimate empaths, which is why Iggy used them back then, but also why Wavves did too more recently. What is it about punk kids and dogs? Well, both are reckless, raging, impassioned loyalists committing with no understanding of what commitment means. But is that not what true selflessness is? I don’t know, but this is a heartfelt rager of a track. Their next album, Ash & Ice, is out June 3rd. Check out the video above.
