Listen: Royal Blood - "Come On Over"

24 April 2014, 21:25 | Written by Jim Fletcher

Royal Blood demonstrate they’ve lost none of their bite with the release of the scything, blistering punk-blues of “Come On Over”.

The pair, Michael Kerr and Ben Thatcher, make an exciting and compelling racket, armed with only four hands, a voice, a drumkit and a bass guitar. Their previous effort, “Little Monster”. showed that behind the noise and bluster is a band able to write catchy and memorable melodies as well. It’s a mixture that has earned them not only a healthy fan base, but a place on the BBC’s Sound of 2014.

New track, “Come On Over”, proves they were no flash in the pan. Following the lineage from Led Zeppelin through Queens of the Stone Age to the likes of Wet Nuns and Black Keys, the band opens with a typically malevolent blues riff before the track charges headlong through tripped-out, messy, supercharged blues.
