They might not fit into a convenient theory, but the Killers haven't wasted much time since their formation in 2002: Even before their debut album, Hot Fuss, appeared on Island in mid-2004, they were already selling out headlining shows in England. Named for a fictional group in a New Order video, the Killers practice a tense, stylish brand of rock with lyrical left turns that recall classic Bowie while very much demonstrating a smart originality. "Somebody Told Me" has singer/keyboardist Brandon Flowers wondering about a rumor that "you had a boyfriend who looked like a girlfriend that I had in February of last year." Hot Fuss announces itself with "Jenny Was a Friend of Mine," part of a planned "murder trilogy" with "Midnight Show." With their roots in glam and New Wave, and their undeniable talent, the Killers have helped breathe fresh air into the current alt-rock scene. -
