Artist: The Black Keys
Album: El Camino
Song: Little Black Submarines
The Black Keys are a soulful rock and blues band who are currently on their way to world domination, using their gritty guitar riffs and catchy beats. After being around for over a decade the band, consisting of Dan Auerbach (guitar and vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums) have proved themselves to be testament to blues and rock; earning 3 Grammy Awards from their 2010 album Brothers.
El Camino has more of a rock and guitar feel to it than Brothers, however, Auerbach’s vocal is just as passionate and fiery as ever. “Little Black Submarines” is a perfect example of this. The song has a “Stairway to Heaven”-esque build up, but is a hit in its own right and is much more soulful. If you haven’t yet been taken over by the music that these boys make, this song will be the thing to do it.
