Of Note: 'Figure It Out' by Royal Blood
'Figure It Out'
Who says rock and roll is dead?
Hailing from Brighton, U.K., Royal Blood, comprised of Ben Thatcher and Mike Kerr, was a bright spot for me in 2014. ‘Figure It Out’ is a precise aural assault, possessing strains of both classic Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin. It totally won me over.
They’ve hit the #1 spot on the UK singles charts twice, while their self-titled album hit #1 in the U.K. and #3 in Australia. Stateside., their debut managed to hit #30 on the album charts, with two of their singles making their presence known on the Rock Singles chart.
In 2015, they, along with Iggy Pop, will be opening act on the Foo Fighters upcoming tour.
