Killin’ floor’ draws heavily on black water blues, the acapella foot stomping kinda thing you find in the rural south where I’m from. The song stems from that feeling of you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t. A women can make you feel like the world is falling down around you. That feeling where wading through depression seems more like slowly drowning. You know…the blues.Kail Baxley
“Killin’ Floor” by Kail Baxley
Kail Baxley has created a masterpiece that is not only a beauty of blues and rock uniting into one marvelous soundscape but also a music video that captures the essence of the lyrics through a story of intrigue, mystery and damnation for wandering men in the dessert at the hands of an alluring and beautiful woman in a classic car. “Killin’ Floor” is one of those rare gems that once you are able to hold in your hands you just don’t want to let go for you know that you have caught a glimpse of what music is truly all about. And the music video is a cinematic gem directed by Ryan Sheehy and starring Michelle Forbes as the mysterious woman and Kail Baxley as the wandering man. There’s no going wrong with anything in regards of this experience, it truly is fulfilling to every inch of the senses and evokes the true nature of the song. Through each verse we know that no matter what we do, we are damned in the end. Enjoy!
