Prepare for power chords

You could easily be forgiven for mistaking Band of Skulls as a product of small town America from the appearances of their music in ads for Mustang cars, Gossip Girl and Friday Night Lights. But this trio were actually formed on the English south coast and a deeper listen reveals they’re part of a rocking bluesy British tradition.

There’s a lyrical agility and subtlety to tracks like Nightmares that fully exposes their UK indie roots while the drive and exuberance of Hoochie Coochie is closer to the playful sexual ambivalence of glam and Marc Bolan than the soulful deep South of Muddy Waters. Expect a pleasurable '70s sleaze and riffs that will leave you smiling long after the last power chord has faded in your ears.
