[Quick Fixes] Kill Your Boyfriend - Elizabeth

Kill Your Boyfriend - Elizabeth
Elizabeth is the new single of Kill Your Boyfriend, which was released on 29th November 2019 via Depths Records. The B-Side features a remix by Preoccupations (formerly known as Viet Cong) guitarist Daniel Christiansen.

Over the past few years they released a number of singles and an LP, touring all across Europe and sharing stages with Zola Jesus, KVB, Civil Civic and Zu. More recently, they performed with the Preoccupations, whose guitarist, Dan, was so impressed by their live performance that he enthusiastically accepted to remix their latest single.

KYB seem to bridge the semi-obscure but hauntingly fascinating tradition of Veneto’s Post-Punk days (animated by lost heroes without a cause like Death in Venice,  Evabraun and Pyramids, to mention a few) into the current era’s rich cauldron of Neopsychedelia.

They forged a cold and sinister signature sound that is fast-paced and atmospheric all at once. Asked to describe their own sound in an interview, the band more simply defined it as “a killer that came in the night, violent and cold”. The project was named after a comic book one-shot by Grant Morrison, whose darkest strips would perfectly suit KYB's convulsive soundscapes.
