The Brighton duo’s upcoming full-length is due out on April 30 via Warner Records, with the mesmerising and brilliantly dancey title-track available to stream below.
Explaining the band’s sonic evolution this time around, frontman Mike Kerr reveals that it all came incredibly naturally to Royal Blood – completed by drummer Ben Thatcher.
“We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play,” he says. “That’s what sparked the creativity on the new album, the chasing of that feeling. It’s weird, though – if you think back to Figure it Out, it kind of contains the embryo of this album.
“We realised that we didn’t have to completely destroy what we’d created so far; we just had to shift it, change it,” Mike explains. “On paper, it’s a small reinvention. But when you hear it, it sounds so fresh.”
It does indeed – stick it in your ears now:
