The Sweet Kill unveil intense and dark single “War”

The Sweet Kill has proven time and again to be versatile and varied with their sound. This time, their new single “War” delves deep into introspectiveness and self-doubt, exploring topics of addiction and dependency. The stark music video was shot in black and white and explores the tumultuous and toxic nature of drug and alcohol dependency. Co-starring LA-based artist Natalia Valeska, and directed by Jamie Mitchell, the visuals are as haunting as they are alluring as it shows the visceral reality of a relationship riddled by addiction.

“War” is the first cut off The Sweet Kill’s upcoming EP Love & Death, and was premiered on Grunge Cake, March 25th. Heavy electronic riffs and creepy samples share the spotlight with vocalist Pete Mills’ melancholic verses. The track builds slowly, reaching a heartfelt crescendo about two-thirds of the way in. The emotive track was mixed by Dave “Rave” Ogilvie, Pete Mills & Douglas “Voli” Martung, and mastered by Dave Kutch.

“‘War’ depicts the struggle of active addiction. Moving from one hit or drink to the next. The afflicted have no regard for the ones that love them. I’m able to revisit this darkness in depth due to my own experience in overcoming life as an addict” – Pete Mills

The purpose of the LOVE & DEATH EP is to provoke conversation that questions and exposes the social stigma attached to the disease of addiction. The topic of addiction and abandonment that WAR depicts comes at a crucial time, with a number of celebrated musicians and artists admitting to or succumbing to drugs and/or depression.  Check out the music video below!
