Band of Skulls release ‘Sweet Sour’
The new album, ‘Sweet Sour‘, by Band of Skulls is not for the faint of heart. They are a trio that makes no bones about it. This is not pretentious music – it’s lowbrow rock n’ roll with attitude and aggression to boot.
Stylistically, they are still doing what worked on their debut ‘Baby Darling Doll Face Honey’: making rock songs that border on cliché, but just end up being cool. Who can argue with that? But there are some hints at what could come. Particularly, the unexpected breakdown on “Lay My Head Down” may be evidence of a more sophisticated sound that’s less ‘in-your-face’ and more ambient.
‘Sweet Sour‘ is out now on their own label, Electric Blues Recordings under exclusive license in the U.S. to Vagrant Records
