Ash & Ice is the fifth studio album by indie rock band The Kills. It was released on June 3, 2016 through Domino. The album was recorded in a rented house in Los Angeles and at Electric Lady Studios, New York City. It was produced by Jamie Hince and co-produced by John O'Mahoney. It is promoted by the singles "Doing It to Death" and "Heart of a Dog".

Ash & Ice is The Kills’ first album in five years-a delay partly attributed to chronic tendon problems Hince experienced after breaking a finger. And, as if making up for lost time, they’ve returned with an ambitious record that encompasses everything they’ve done before and further embellishes their boombox beats with Brazilian and Afro-pop influences. Clocking in at 50 minutes, it is by far the longest Kills album to date. But while Ash & Ice has the girth of a big statement record, it lacks the focus and purposeful sequencing of one. The issue with Ash & Ice isn’t that The Kills are slowing down or going soft-the quietest tracks here actually resonate the most soundly. Hum for Your Buzz is a stripped-down gospelized serenade complete with organ drones and a steeple-shaking lead vocal from Mosshart-that’s destined to become a crowd-pleasing encore standard in the band’s setlist.

Ash & Ice contains the trademark sound that the band has created for themselves, with fuzzed out guitars, drum loops, detailed production, and Mosshart's spirited vocals. The problem with this release though is that most of the tracks seem to blend together with familiarity. In the five years since the band's previous album, Blood Pressures, the band have gone through significant changes. Three months after that album was released, Jamie Hince married supermodel Kate Moss on July 1, 2011 - but the couple are currently going through a bitter divorce battle.

Album · 2016 · 13 Songs. Insidious synths light up the Anglo-American duo’s spry fifth record. The Anglo half-Jamie Hince-sought solace in synths and electronica after a gnarly time with the tendons in his left hand left him questioning his guitar-playing future. This enforced sonic detour has rejuvenated his band. Doing It to Death melds the pair’s trademark lascivious guitars and fevered Alison Mosshart vocal with spare and hypnotic beats, the writhing Days of Why and How has dancehall inflections, while Impossible Tracks is an exultant gospel guitar blowout. Ash & Ice The Kills. Once known for taking risks, the duo falls back on tricks that have now become commonplace. by Amanda Roscoe Mayo. Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince, also known as The Kills, have been around the block a time or two in their fifteen-year career. The latest from the duo, Ash & Ice, is as brooding as you might expect given the band name and their public persona, but lacks the hooks required for repeat listening. The heartache and longing found throughout past albums are present here as well, but fail to find an emotional foothold, instead mired in spent ideas and tired tropes.
