The Black Keys – Turn Blue

When I heard ‘Fever’, the more recent release from The Black Keys forthcoming album, I was worried that I wasn’t going to get as much from the new album as I expected. With Danger Mouse co-producing, The Black Keys have got a lot to live up to in my eyes, the companionship having worked so brilliantly on their 2008 album Attack & Release.

Where ‘Fever’ worried me, the title track ‘Turn Blue’ has reassured me with a swamp of psychedelic caramel, the electronic sounds yet again taking a backseat to the slick melodies of Dan Auerbach. Where the first single had come across as a poor excuse for a dance track, ‘Turn Blue’ is imbued with an impressive sleaze, layered noise that transports you to a world shrouded in badly lit cigarette smoke. After three minutes, the tune gives way to a bass line and various synth noises, the music and accompanying video becoming strikingly hypnotic.

All in all, I’m optimistic.
