hmv tips for 2014… Royal Blood
Every day throughout January we're going to be introducing you to a new act who we think are going to everywhere in 2014. Today it’s the turn of Brighton duo Royal Blood, they're pure power...
Who Are They?
Hailing from Brighton, Royal Blood consist of bassist/singer Michael Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher. They formed in early 2013 after Thatcher returned from a trip around Australia with a hunger to form a band and have gigged relentlessly ever since. They're now signed up and working away on their debut album, which is due out later this year.
Who Do They Sound Like?
As raw as The Black Keys, as muscular as vintage Queens Of The Stone Age, as tuneful as the White Stripes at their best and as loud as My Bloody Valentine. It's a heady brew…
Why Should I Be Excited?
Because they've already proved that they're an incendiary live band and every track they've released has been a stormer. Get excited.
Can I Hear Something?
You can indeed. The band's recent single 'Out Of The Black' is below for you.
