Bio

Named after a track by legendary bluesman Howlin’ Wolf, Killaflaw inhabit the electronic/rock interzone. They’re from Liverpool, and consist of Benn Helm (vocals, guitar) and Andy Paton (electronics).

New signings to the legendary Wall Of Sound Records, the independent label that brought the world Royksopp, Propellerheads and Stuart Price’s Les Rythmes Digitales amongst many others, they’ve recorded most of their debut album, provisionally entitled ‘Sleaze & Grit’, and are all set to tour the single releases extensively.

It’s in the live arena that Killaflaw really come alive. Singer Benn Helm’s incredibly powerful, bluesy voice and uplifting electric guitar soar over the top of Andy Paton’s beats, bleeps and electro riffs, a sound that has seen them rock festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, Beatherder, Secret Garden and Glade in the UK, and others such as Kazantip in the Ukraine.

The electro-blues band’s first track, ‘Revolution’, won Xfm’s Demo Of The Year award, and then a low-key release of the ‘Set Me On Fire’ single organically spread around the world and topped the DMC charts in the US in 2010. The notorious Utah Saints produced a stunning dubsteppy remix of this track.

In the summer of 2010 they were joined by former Pendulum and Apollo 440 drummer Paul Kodish for several festival shows, and their latest single ‘Happy Daze’ was released on Westway Records in April 2011.

Gigging and recording all the time, Killaflaw produce everything from affecting electronic bangers (‘Broken Idol’, ‘Holy Funk’) to bluesy singalongs ('Milk & Whiskey', ‘Message’) to journeying rocky electronic MTV-friendly anthems (‘Set Me On Fire’, ‘Higher Ground’) to sync-friendly powerhouses (‘Revolution’). As the UK’s DJ magazine said: “Killaflaw have the passion, the soul, the raw power and the tunes. They’re gonna be massive.”
