As their name proudly suggests, Bristol’s Miss Kill hold no reservations in their powerful and cathartic brand of heady grunge. The teenage sisters have been steadily building momentum within our alternative scene since their inception in late 2017 and, despite their youth, have sculpted a monumental sound that draws heavy influence from the likes of Nirvana, Sonic Youth and Pixies. Having enjoyed a background in a softer, acoustic setting, Alannah Jackson displays a clear talent for popular composition that has gradually morphed into a decidedly sprawling and vicious beast.
The advent of Alannah’s sister, Felicity, helming the band’s percussive duties, has seemingly strengthened both the siblings’ personal connection and their confidence in writing and performance. As our very publication proudly reported in regards to the band’s recent outings, these young creators possess an incredible amount of energy and relentless thirst for thundering and powerful expression.
With a smattering of tracks now available online, Miss Kill have proved their talents stretch far beyond the stage and into the studio. Taking pointers from the alternative hits of the late 90s, the band’s five available tracks display impressive dynamic control and emotive lyricism that reaches incredible peaks when combined with their cut-throat, roaring musicality.
Sharing a stage with Nervous Rex and Ragdolz over at Exchange this month should prove to be a powerful night of inclusive punk noise, not to be missed.
