26/08/2018: “Figure It Out” by Royal Blood

Royal Blood are interesting because they’ve only got two people, but sound like a band of four.

The main key behind their trick is that they have a distorted bass guitar, which covers a lot of the midrange, but still has the energy of the bass.

It’s a gritty track, with a darker tone than many of their other hit songs. The bass/guitar alternates between a muted strumming in the verses and a full throated roar in other sections.

The singing is quite noteworthy as well, with a distinctive drone reminiscent of early Arctic Monkeys.

The song was released in 2014 from their debut album, Royal Blood.

Two talented guys, clearly!
