Howlin’ for more

The Black Keys are officially one of my favourite bands. After being a cult success for so many years, they’ve finally broken through to the big time – and sadly sold some of their tunes as soundtracks to rather lackluster adverts (association with Hollyoaks will drag any band’s cool credit down a notch or two). However, who cares when they release such spankingly good retro blues-rock?

The cherry on their rock’n’ roll icing is the multitude of entertaining music videos they put out, with ‘Howlin’ for you’ being arguably the most famous. Admittedly, the fake movie trailer format barely showcases the song in favour of foxy assassins, cute puns and a not-so-hidden homage to Tarantino. But who cares when it’s this infectiously good?

For those who want to hear more, tickets for a February gig at Alexandra Palace are on sale now. I’ll see you guys there…
