Fronted by the gorgeous two-part vocal harmonies of singers Chris Turpin (‘a man who sounds like he’s been gargling glass for fun’ – ‘in a good way’, according to NME) and Stephanie Ward, the lyrical intimacy of the songs is rendered all the more powerful by the interplay between the pair, Turpin’s distinctive voice seemingly arriving from another time and place, while Ward’s softer, huskier tones make for the perfect foil. Buttressed with strings, keys and slide guitar, Kill It Kid blend delta blues and roots to striking effect, producing blistering rock’n’roll in one moment and a smoky film-noir ambience in the next. The band have drawn comparison with The Coral, Mumford & Sons and The Raconteurs with recognisable hints of Tom Waits, Frank Zappa and Zeppelin, but it’s on the strength of the song writing throughout their debut album that the deal is ultimately sealed.
