If you’ve not been watching the Mick Jagger & Martin Scorsese produced HBO drama, Vinyl; you’ve been missing out.
Showcasing a behind the scenes look at record companies during the 1970’s; the series includes some well-formulated stories and as you’d imagine, a brilliant soundtrack.
Royal Blood have written and produced an exclusive track for the series which also features on the official soundtrack release.
Where Are You Now? is bold, ballsy, brilliant and above all else, confident proving that the duo from Worthing have evolved since their self-titled 2014 debut.
“Hearing [Vinyl character] Richie Finestra talk about the first time you heard a song that made your hairs on the back of your neck stand up or made you wanna dance or kick someone’s arse,” Kerr told Noisey. “I just wanted to write a song that gave me that sort of buzz!”. I think they’ve definitely accomplished that mission with this track and if this is a glimpse of what we can expect from the inevitable second album, I’ve very excited for its release.
It would appear we have some time to wait though as the duo are due to go in to a brief hibernation following their touring stint before getting back in to the studio. Don’t make the hibernation too long though guys!
