Band of Skulls - "Black Magic" (video) (premiere)
Band of Skulls' "Black Magic" keep it real and true to the roots of rock and roll with the group's heavily blues-influenced sound.
Band of Skulls always keep it real and true to the roots of rock and roll with their heavily blues-influenced sound that's thoroughly modern. This year saw the release of the band's fourth album, By Default. Drummer Matt Hayward says that they "went back to square one... The first three records were like a trilogy, a piece of work in of themselves. We wanted to do those things, and we did them all. We took a breath, took a look at what we’d done, and started from scratch again." It's always good for the creative process to start with a fresh canvas from time to time and Band of Skulls clearly benefitted from the approach.
Today, we have the band's latest video, "Black Magic", which Band of Skulls says is "inspired initially by mixing vintage Bollywood dance along with the track and then reimagined by our director Yonatan Weisberg." Time to rock out.
