Song of the Week (04/15/17): Royal Blood – “Lights Out”

How much sound can only two musicians make? Listen to Royal Blood and may you be surprised! The duo of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher creates a terrific, groovy and head-banging noise on “Lights Out.” The track is off their upcoming sophomore album, How Did We Get So Dark?

Thatcher holds everything down with pounding drums that will make your speakers shudder. Kerr rips out riff after riff on his bass, even throwing in a distorted, sick solo. The song is both heavy and nimble, rocking and funky. If you get a chance to see them live, “Lights Out” will undoubtedly be a highlight of any set.
How Did We Get So Dark? is out on June 16.
