“Little Monster” – Royal Blood

royal bloodIf you thought Rock ‘n’ Roll was dead, you thought wrong. And we’ve got the song to prove it. “Little Monster” is the second single to be released by the Brighton two-piece, Royal Blood. They’re basically the male equivalent of Deap Vally – a back-to-the-roots rock band comprised of only a singer/guitarist and drummer. The song is on fire all the way through with lyrics like, “Got love on my fingers/ Lust on my tongue” and a flourish of a drum solo near the end to top it all off. Not to mention, the immediate, aggressive guitar hook that lures you into the song. The grainy black and white video isn’t groundbreaking – simply footage from a live show – but it captures the raw energy of the crowd and the men behind Royal Blood. To quote Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) in his cocky acceptance speech at the Brits: “That rock ‘n’ roll, it just won’t go away…it’s always waiting there, just around the corner, ready to make its way back through the sludge and smash through the glass ceiling, looking better than ever.” No one demonstrates that better in this moment than Royal Blood. Be on the lookout for their debut album later this year!
