On the back of their acclaimed quasi-comeback album Blood Pressures, the Kills have been touring hard. Their latest trek takes them through Australia, where they stopped in to Triple J to perform “Satellite” along with a new cover. They dug deep to perform “One Silver Dollar,” a song sung by Marilyn Monroe in the 1954 Western River of No Return.
Far from their usual gutter-blues stomp, “One Silver Dollar” finds Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince at their most stripped-down. “I really love this song actually,” Mosshart says by way of explanation. “I don’t know why.” Her delivery expresses her appreciation more eloquently.
