Royal Blood – How Did We Get So Dark
27 June 2017 New Releases
Royal Blood have released their highly anticipated second album that has shot straight in at #1 in the album chart.
Spanning 10 tracks, How Did We Get So Dark? marks the British garage rockers’ sophomore record and follow-up to their 2014 Mercury Prize-nominated self-titled LP. Recorded with the help of producer Jolyon Thomas, it sees the duo of Ben Thatcher and Mike Kerr pulling influences from various corners of the music world.
“I think I was thinking of The Hives or something,” Kerr told The Daily Telegraph of lead single “I Only Lie When I Love You”. “I was thinking of The Rolling Stones and being 16 when I was making it, something that was more roll than rock.” Elsewhere, Royal Blood channeled that one group of famous French robots. “We were going for a Daft Punk thing quite a lot and trying to fuck with the rock thing, I guess,” Kerr explained to NME of LP track “Lights Out”. “What would Daft Punk do if they wrote a rock tune?”
