The Killers

Anyone know anything more about them?
I've seen the video for the song Brightside and I like the sound, and the singer's voice.

Sam really likes them. I've heard them before, but can't remember what I've heard, so I'm downloading some of their stuff from him.

U2Girl i was gonna start a thread about these guys a few days ago. The song/video that they are playing here in Canada is called SomebodyTold Me and man i think that is one of the best songs I have heard in the last few years. It's better than any Franz Ferdinand and Modest Mouse songs i have heard that they usually play right after or before. I haven't heard the rest of the album and i bet it's not as good but that song alone is really good.

Agreed. It would be nice to be optimistic for once, but I'm not laying my cards on the table until I hear more material. But, considering the way boss HOS speaks of them... they may be promising.

They are fantastic. Love "somebody told me" and "Mr. Brightside". Can't wait to see them at T this year.

The Killers

I was watching Carson Daley and there was a band on called "The Killers" who sang this song called "Somedbody told me". I liked that song. I admit that it is a 1 hit wonder but still catchy none the less.

Since the band seems to be getting favorable reviews, I will buy there album or at least check it out the next time I am in the video store.

I don't know how they'd already be relegated to One Hit Wonder status, but they have a sizeable underswell behind them, and I think they'll do well considering the success of other bands like them, (Stellastar**) including the current underground phenom - Franz Ferdinand.
