The Band To Know Right Now, And Why We Love Them: The Black Keys

Following their stellar wins at the 2013 Grammys, it’s no surprise that The Black Keys’ Youtube views have skyrocketed in the past few days. And their success is well-deserved. With a less-than glamorous rise to fame as reported by The Guardian a while back, it seems that The Black Keys come from a different era, a more rugged ilk than some of the bands out there today.

We love them because you can feel the labour in their music. Their lyrics remind us of the neighbour-band from down the street, who seem to have somehow professionalized their sound.

With hit after hit stumbling from their collection, it’s time to take a minute to remember their top 5 most awesome songs.

We enjoyed listening through their back catalogue this evening that we cracked open a bottle of wine, lit a cigarette, and sent a sexy text to our other halves! Rock n’Roll will do that to you!
