Single Review – The Killers – Peace of Mind

The Killers have marked the tenth anniversary of their hit second album Sam’s Town by releasing a demo track that was not placed on the final track listing of the album. ‘Peace of Mind’ is very much evocative of their sound circa 2006 and would have blended in to the album with ease. The piano ballad come rock anthem is tempered by Brandon Flower’s cautiously trembling vocal, though the sound does reach melodic heights through wiry lead guitars atop of a piano chord rhythm. It is by no means one of their classic tracks from this period, yet it captures their creative direction perfectly. A nostalgic gift for any devoted Killers fan.
