When i first heard the band name , “The Black Keys” , it gave me a feeling of Jazz and old Blues, I thought that this band would comprise people jamming their way through dark lit rooms with cigars and black hats everywhere, I first saw their music video,’ Tighten Up‘ on MTV and it hit me like anything, they descended like aura of musicians mixing pots curry of Indie Rock and Garage Rock .
The lead singer, Dan Auerbach is a rugged example of garage raised indie rock rebel infused with American Macho instincts in him,but when he starts in the “Little Black Submarine” he takes people to memoirs of Led Zepplin in their peak days. His beard and guitar both are a part of this manifested body.
Patrick Carney on the drums, gave me a feeling of an unusually tall man lost in a concert, took the drums set by mistake,but when he plays he shadows all the doubts of people around him. He without a doubt was a social outcast during his school days till he start working with Dan in this project.
Their infusion of this music is highly addiction. Their notable songs that have changed my music taste me include –
1. Tighten Up
2. Lonely Boy
3. Little Black Submarines
4. Weight of Love
5. Howling for You
Looking forward to their work and their new pursuits of creating better music for the world.
