We’ve been keeping tabs on garage-surf outfit Johnny Kills for quite a while now.
In that time the Brighton/London-based trio never failed to deliver, unleashing a series of infectious and fuzzed up anthems including ‘Let’s Talk About Me’, ‘My Shirt Guy Is High’ and ‘End Game’. Johnny Kills’ early output has been very impressive – and that’s not just my opinion – with it being the catalyst for their recent signing to cult record label Killing Moon. It is the first fruits from this new partnership that draws our attention today, namely new single ‘Who’s Counting?’. Packing plenty of power-pop punch, ‘Who’s Counting’ sees Johnny Kills channelling their inner most FIDLAR and Wavves. Jaunty riffs mingle with an anthemic chorus full of festival-ready bounce, while the surf-rock guitars and propulsive bassline complete this fuzz and fun-filled scuzzy-pop tour-de-force. Another swaggering garage-surf rock inspired sensation; top marks!
Listen to ‘Who’s Counting?’ below and while you’re at it, if you have not done so already, why not get acquainted with Johnny Kills’ excellent back catalogue.
