Royal Blood, ‘Trouble’s Coming’ – Single Review

Rock duo, Royal Blood are back. Moreover, they bring their infectious rock sound back to the forefront of the music industry. Following a similar direction to their previous releases, ‘Trouble’s Coming’ drives forward with conviction and the two-piece prove why they are at the top of the game.

I was one of the lucky few who managed to snap up a ticket to see the boys perform live before they took off on their triumphant adventure. It was a hazy basement, and there was at most 30 people in attendance. The music they churned out was out of this world. Also, I remember the faces of the spectators, all-knowing they were witnessing something monumental.

Strong Sound

The band have catapulted forward since I last saw them perform and they hit the nail on the head once again with the new release ‘Trouble’s Coming’. Furthermore, it kicks off with a gradually increasing drum beat. For me, it sounds similar to ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster The People. We are then in with a strong lead melody which drives ahead with pure might. It comes with an unorthodox sound, probably most linked to a sound you would expect from rock heavyweights, Muse.

Vocally, Mike Kerr smashes to the front of the mix with a vocal which will have you clinging on for dear life. He sings with confidence, and his ability to delve around his octave range is impressive. He sings hard, but he also pushes through with softer notes which makes the track even more flavoursome.

The beat is off the chain as you would expect from Ben Thatcher. He cements the track deep with a potent fundamental. Also, at many times throughout the track, you will struggle to understand how only two people can make such an enormous sound.
