The new 7" single from the excellent Kingston visitors Royal Blood, offering a glimpse into what to expect from their third album.
‘Trouble’s Coming’ concisely tees up what to expect from Royal Blood’s third album: a very organic infusion of their visceral hard rock sting with a disco-tinged rhythm that grooves rather than pummels. And as the duo started work on the project, which they largely produced themselves at The Church and Sleeper Sounds in London, the song proved to be the turning point in the creative process.
As vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr explains: “It was the moment something started to click - where we started playing over those much more rigid dance beats. The breakthrough was realising that there was real common ground between that and what we’d done before. It’s that AC/DC aspect: where the quality that makes the riffs seem so cutting is because of that beat.
Although on the surface we were stepping outside what we’d done before, it didn’t feel at all unnatural; it felt like we were returning to music we’d loved from the very beginning: Daft Punk, Justice, things that were really groove-orientated. It was all about the beat. It felt like familiar territory, but something we’d censored in ourselves.”
