Listen Here: Killers Walk Among Us – “Bonjour Tristesse”

July 23, 2014 § 1 Comment


Killers Walk Among Us, Sweden’s latest indie rock export, has a slightly different come-up story that sets them apart from any other band out there. After their lead singer and songwriter Stefan Holmberg passed away earlier this year, the remaining members of the band are continuing to push their music as a tribute to their friend.

Their new single, “Bonjour Tristesse,” is haunting ballad that compels the ears with eerie guitar riffs and weighty drums. The lead singer’s vocals (which are reminiscent of 30 Seconds To Mars’ lead vocalist Jared Leto) are quite somber, which is honestly chilling when thinking about the band’s current status. Nevertheless, “Bonjour Tristesse” is an indie rock winner.

Check it out below:

Look out for the band’s debut (and final) album on August 26th via A Tendervision Recording.
