Music Video of the Week- Royal Blood

This week’s video comes from a band that I recently came across listening to random playlists in Spotify. And what a pleasant surprise they have been.

Royal Blood is an English rock duo that started back in 2013. Although, if you listen to their album, you will swear that there are more than two people in the band. Another cool thing about them is that their sound comes from a bass guitar and a set of drums. That’s it. They are like the White Stripes, but a lot heavier.

I’m not sure how he does it, but the lead singer/bass player creates some amazing and unusual sounds with his instrument. I’ve listened to their entire debut album and I’m quite impressed that they can create such great music with just two instruments.

So without further delay, check out this video for the song called, “Little Monster.” Enjoy!

Music Video of the Week- Silverstein

I will admit and I’m not ashamed that I still listen to bands that were popular in the 2000s. If a song has good lyrics, real instruments and a great music video, then I’m always on board. One of my favorite bands from the 2000s was a group called Silverstein. A few months ago, I started listening to their music again and I was pleasantly surprised that they are still releasing new records.

In fact, this year, they will be releasing a new record called, “I Am Alive in Everything I Touch.” And I’m very excited about it. These guys have consistently made good albums without ever changing their style of music. Most bands these days decide to switch styles in order to sell more records but it usually just comes off looking desperate. Check out the new Nickelback video if you need an example of how sad it can be.

But yes, Silverstein has stuck to their guns and continue to make great rock music. That’s why this week’s video is from their new album and it’s called, “A Midwestern State of Emergency.” Enjoy!
