Looks to Kill's anthemic, hook-driven lyrics and high energy live performance are setting the stage for them to become one of Vancouver's best up-and-coming young bands. The band recently won a grant to record with top Vancouver producer, Jonathan Fluevog.

Biography

Electro-rock group Looks To Kill suckles electro-sweetness and then surprises you with a pure rock sucker punch. The band combines hints of eighties pop rock with modern electro vibes, creating an unique and high energy stage show.

The group formed in the fall of 2011 with Katie Fagan (vocals), Sam Masih (guitar) and Alex Ross (keys) and recently added Rudy Mallat (drums) and Tommy Automatic (bass). The band's sound is easily electro-rock but with influences from eighties bands such as Depeche Mode, Billy Idol, Corey Hart, Möev but combined in a new millennium way. Anthemic and hooky, Katie's vocals contrast sweet innocence and then dose you with a hint of wicked, Joan Jett-style.

The group's debut, sold out performance at Fortune Sound Club just followed the release of their three-song EP, We Want Your Love (the debut EP), which has the hook-drive title song as well as the dark but epic Night's Long and the live show favourite Wake Up. The EP was produced by local Fox Seeds winner, Jordan Carrier.

"We were both getting asked by everyone we knew for the tracks so we wanted to record at least a few of the tracks to start building momentum and growing our fan base," said Sam. "It's been overwhelming, actually. I've been in other bands, but I've never seen such an immediate response to the music."

The group recently won a grant to work with legendary local producer, Jonathan Fluevog at Vogville Studios and will be working in the studio over the winter.

Lyrics

Night's Long

Written By: K. Fagan, S. Masih, A. Ross

Nights Long

Verse 1
Nights Long
No one is waiting up for us
quick pace and we’re falling behind
I cant see the stars in this light
come close to me in my sight
nights long
no one is waiting

ahhh ahhhh

Chorus
I – I could try now, try now
I – I could try now, try now
I – I could try now, try now
I – I could try now, try now

Verse 2
Nights Long
no one is waiting up for us
It’s too bright we’re all blinded by the light
We went too deep, got caught in between
nights long, no one is coming

Chorus
I – I could try now, try now
I – I could try now, try now
I – I could try now, try now
I – I could try now, try now

Chorus

We Want Your Love

We Want Your Love

Verse 1
The first kiss is everything you want
ahh ohhh
The last kiss burns everything you got
ahh ohh

Don’t you get buried
and don’t you get caught
don’t sell your soul, little sister for a love you haven’t got

Chorus
Love, we want some of your love
we want some of your love
we want some of your love, little sister

Verse 2
The cold stares they’ll swallow you whole
and bright eyes we can’t hold you back no more

Don’t you get buried
and don’t you get caught
don’t sell your soul, little sister for a love you haven’t got

Chorus
Love, we want some of your love
we want some of your love
we want some of your love, little sister

cause I’ve said it all and you’ve heard nothing
I hope your starlit eyes can see
this world will take you down and
leave you dead with nothing

Can’t you see
what could be

Chorus
Wake Up Wake Up
- cause we’re not waiting for you -
