Ben Thachter: “I think this record was about letting the ideas take us where
they needed to go. If there was a song that was calling us to do something that
wasn’t typically what we’re known for, that’s where we’re going to go. The songs
are in charge and if that means having a record that’s quite varied that’s what
we’re going to go for, rather than trying to shoehorn everything into the same

Mike Kerr (bassist/vocalist): “We were in the right place at the right time,
and we have to remember to give ourselves the credit that we didn’t get into
this position by winning a quiz show, we put in a serious amount of work. It’s
taken us four albums to realise this isn’t luck, we’re good and we’re committed
to this.”

TUTV: Nothing new under the Royal Blood sun with this new longplayer, except
that the duo show their mellow side a bit more than before (Pull Me Trough / The Firing
Line / There Goes My Cool / Waves
). But don’t worry, all you manic headbangers out there, there are still plenty of uppercuts present to go bonkers to.

Key singles/clips: Mountains At Midnight / Pull Me Trough
