EDITORS’ NOTES

Album two sees Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher double down on what powered their 2014 debut to success. Namely: unapologetically huge riffs (we still have little idea how Kerr shreds so ferociously with just a bass) and a taste for the theatrical. This is a muscular 10-track workout that blows by: “I Only Lie When I Love You” is the sort of spiky anti-love anthem Royal Blood are getting particularly excellent at, “She’s Creeping” struts on through like peak Queens of the Stone Age, and “Hook, Line and Sinker” is a monster built to decimate festival fields.
