: "Yes, when I recorded with [[David Kahne|Davey]], we recorded 13 songs. So I was never expecting to release an EP, but when iTunes came to us and became fervent supporters and said, “Put out anything and we'll give you the artist's spotlight,” we decided, okay, we'll just put out an EP, which was released on October 21."
In an interview, Del Rey called the EP's genre, "Hawaiian glam metal." Artists that influenced the EP's sound include Elvis, Poison, and Van Halen. Songwriter David Nichtern revealed to MTV that ''[[Kill Kill (EP)|Kill Kill]]'' was a way for Del Rey and her team to generate some buzz before releasing a fully produced studio album. He also called the title track, "a very good song."
