Royal Blood have come out of absolutely nowhere to become one of the most hotly talked about bands of the last 6 months, maybe even the year. I was lucky enough to catch them in Brighton a few days ago and their live show completely blew apart the minds of everybody in the room. The best part about this duo (yes, duo) is that they live up to and far surpass any expectations you might have of them.
'Out of the Black' is their latest tune to be released and is an absolute powerhouse of drums and bass. Benji must get through 4 or 5 drum kits a week with the intensity of his playing and bassist/ vocalist Michael runs through guitar and bass amps as well as an array of aftereffects to contriubute to the massive sound. Imagine a mixture of old Muse, Queens of the Stone Age and Death From Above 1979 and you're about halfway to the potential of this band.
