The Killers are an American rock band formed in Las Vegas in by Brandon Flowers lead vocals, keyboards, bass and Dave Keuning lead guitar, backing vocals. The official lineup of the band was completed when Mark Stoermer bass, rhythm guitar, backing vocals and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. The Killers are considered one of the biggest rock bands of the 21st century,  and the most successful act to ever emerge from Nevada, selling more than 28 million albums. When the pair met, they bonded over similar musical influences and immediately began writing songs together in Keuning's apartment. They named their band The Killers as that was the name of a fictional band in the music video for the New Order song Crystal.
Despite sending demos out to various US labels, the band remained unsigned until they caught the interest of British indie label Lizard Kill Records. Following considerable buzz in the UK, the band finally signed to Island Def Jam, and their first album Hot Fuss was released to international acclaim, spending more weeks than any other record in the UK album charts that decade. Hot Fuss is a unique mix of alternative and indie, with some new wave and post-punk influences. At the start of , the band announced they were going on a brief hiatus, and each member went on to pursue solo projects. There can be no doubt that The Killers reached their plateau with their debut release, but this has not stopped them continually trying to reach these heights again, forging a back catalog full of impressive and memorable hits. By looking inward, The Killers may not have released the record fans wanted, but it nonetheless delivered some memorable tracks such as this underrated album cut. The horns are what elevate this song from the rest of the album, being simultaneously effective yet also feeling completely out of place. This gives the song a real otherworldly feel, something which is amplified by the repeated reference to bones.
