Single Review: The Black Keys – ‘Gold On The Ceiling’

2 min read

American rock collective The Black Keys are quickly becoming known as one of the most influential bands to emerge out of the states in the past decade. Taking home an impressive 3 Grammy Awards for their 2010 studio release Brothers, the band are going strong with the release of their brand new single Gold On The Ceiling which steadily paves the way for the bands forthcoming seventh studio release.

BlackKeysGoldOnTheCeilingA slightly distorted guitar riff ushers us into Gold On The Ceiling as the track mingles through the hippie age with various Woodstock qualities and an anthemic, harmonized chorus that sticks in your head for hours after. A punchy electro bass-line pumps heavily throughout the number while the band tear through a four minute long, well executed musical exposé.

Gold On The Ceiling is one of the more progressive and heavyweight additions to the bands latest album El Camino and one that, along with the rest of the record, draws influence from the early American music scene and the latest release is drenched in rockabilly and hints of blues as the band unfold the latest in a long string of hit releases.
