Given the raw bluesy-rock guitars and male\female vocals on this album it’s easy to compare Band of Skulls to The White Stripes. A comparison they probably wouldn’t be too disappointed to hear. Mix in a smattering of Black Keys and BRMC and I think this makes for a pretty decent debut from the Southampton trio.
Death By Diamonds & Pearls and I Know What I Am (I think I first heard this on an iTunes\iPod advert) provide the anthems for the album, but Honest and Cold Flame provide a nice change of pace. Their follow up album is released next week which I’ll definitely be purchasing in the hope that it’s as good as this debut.
There’s nothing ground breaking here, just good old Blues Rock played the way it should be. What do you think?
