Royal Blood - Typhoons
No, Rock isn’t dead. And neither are the pitfalls that come with the rock n’ roll lifestyle. After heavy touring that came with heavy excess Royal Blood frontman Mike Kerr decided to kick booze and drugs before starting to work on the band’s third album “Typhoons”. But instead of accompanying his lyrics dealing with guilt, regret and his path to recovery with somber tunes, out came an album aiming at the dancefloors, the lion’s den for a recovering addict. It sounds bright, euphoric, full of swagger. Royal Blood found a way to present the good old almighty riff in a thoroughly modern light. Rock music that’s looking forward and is happening right now.
