A Tune For Tuesday: Royal Bangs

Another jam skittering onto my radar via the Christmas car journeys and the Sirius radio therein (no, this isn't an advert series, just an appreciation of the novelty that system provided this time around), this Tuesday tune comes from Tennesseans Royal Bangs.

War Bells is an urgent indie-rock belter, infused with a healthy dose of pulsing electronic beats to propel it along at double time when required. With the apparent aggression of a Prodigy track at first it segues satisfyingly into a more raw, garage-rock tinged track channeling current darlings like Japandroids

Despite fusing several musical elements together, everything here feels coherent and is blended particularly well. Definitely one to rouse you from that slumber induced by a third day of left over Christmas dinner.
