We just can't get enough Brighton music, this week's playlist track is from Brighton's favourite sons, Royal Blood, with their track Hook, Line and Sinker.
Back in the chilly April of 2017, I headed down to join the queue to get a ticket to the surprise Royal Blood gig that night at the infamous Brighton haunt, Concorde 2. The local Brighton duo announced the gig online the evening before, with limited wristbands on sale from 8am at the legendary music store, Resident Records. We knew we just HAD to be there. So, James my sister Natalie, and I pulled ourselves out of bed and grabbed our hats and scarves, ready to brave the cold. We got our tickets and headed off to work, impatient for the evening ahead!
It later emerged that this gig was going to be the location of filming for the video for their new single, Hook, Line and Sinker. At least that explained why I bumped into someone wearing a go-pro in the middle of the mosh pit! Within the first few seconds of the track, you know it’s going to be a big one and it certainly doesn’t disappoint!
We saw the band again later in the year at the Brighton Centre, where I had my first crowd surf! As a live band, Royal Blood are awesome. The things they can do with just the two of them on stage is insane. Layered and riffy with a Brighton and Hove Albion logo on the drum kit, the whole experience is wicked from start to finish. Seeing them in Brighton is made even more special by being able to see a local band, who have smashed the charts, play in their hometown.
