Singer-songwriter and State Champs bassist Ryan Scott Graham’s solo indie-rock project Speak Low If You Speak Love has debuted a new cover of Jimmy Eat World’s coveted song “Kill”.

“I had originally worked on the cover to be part of a Jimmy Eat World tribute that never came to fruition. ‘Kill’ is about utmost vulnerability, so when I was asked to be a part of the project covering this song made the most sense to me. Speak Low has always been an endeavor that attempts to put real human emotion on display, and I think this song captures that essence so well. There are no frills – just a beautiful and distressing story of missed chances.”

Graham’s Speak Low If You Speak Love released its debut LP, Everything But What You Need, with Pure Noise Records in 2015. He’s currently working on his follow-up 2nd LP, which is expected out next year.


I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
