After two UK #1 albums, 2 million album sales and an array of international acclaim, you might've thought you knew what to expect from Royal Blood. Those preconceptions were shattered when they released 'Trouble's Coming' last summer. Hitting a melting pot of fiery rock riffs and danceable beats, they delivered something fresh, unexpected and yet entirely in tune with what they'd forged their reputation with. When Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher sat down to talk about making a new album, they knew what they wanted to achieve. It involved a conscious return to their roots, back when they had made music that was influenced by Daft Punk, Justice, and Philippe Zdar of Cassius. It also called for a similar back-to-basics approach to what had made their self-titled debut album so thrilling, visceral and original. ''We sort of stumbled on this sound, and it was immediately fun to play,'' recalls Kerr. ''That's what sparked the creativity on the new album, the chasing of that feeling. It's weird, though - if you think back to 'Figure it Out', it kind of contains the embryo of this album. We realised that we didn't have to completely destroy what we'd created so far; we just had to shift it, change it. On paper, it's a small reinvention. But when you hear it, it sounds so fresh.'' Those traits pulsate throughout the new single and title track. Kerr's spiralling bass riff casts an hypnotic allure as it grows in intensity, while his vocals switch at will between a raw rock roar and a soulful falsetto. It's underpinned by Thatcher's thundering beats, his taut rhythms infused with groove-laden hi-hats. After setting the tone with 'Trouble's Coming', the album opens in breathless, take-no-prisoners style with the fierce metallic grooves of 'Who Needs Friends' hitting an early visceral peak. Royal Blood further reference their fresh array of influences by deploying vocodered vocals on 'Million & One' before dynamically switching between the biggest contrasts of their sound with 'Limbo'. Already a fan favourite having been a regular during the duo's 2019 shows, 'Boilermaker' lives up to its reputation and is more than matched by 'Mad Visions', which evokes a hyper-aggressive Prince. It ends with a final surprise in the shape of the stark piano ballad 'All We Have Is Now', a vulnerable and revealing reminder to live in the moment. This new approach manifested itself in the duo's decision to produce the majority of 'Typhoons' themselves. 'Boilermaker' was produced by Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, the two bands having first connected when Royal Blood supported them on a huge North American tour. Meanwhile, the multiple Grammy Award winner Paul Epworth produced 'Who Needs Friends' and contributed additional production to 'Trouble's Coming'. 'Typhoons' tracklist: 1. 'Trouble's Coming' 2.
