Band Of Skulls - 'Himalayan' Band Of Skulls Tickets

The Southampton rock trip showcase the lessons they learnt while supporting Queens Of The Stone Age and Muse

Band Of Skulls - 'Himalayan'

Album Info

  • Release Date: March 31, 2014
  • Label: Electric Blues Recordings
8 / 10 Having spent a considerable amount of time following 2012’s ‘Sweet Sour’ supporting Queens Of The Stone Age and Muse in some of the world’s vaster enormodomes, it’s perhaps unsurprising that Band Of Skulls have returned with an album that sounds confident enough to fill those venues themselves. In turns more glam-indebted and more duskily evocative than anything they’ve previously offered up, ‘Himalayan’’s aims are as monumental as its title. ‘Asleep At The Wheel’ and ‘Hoochie Coochie’ stomp by on unashamedly sleazy ’70s riffs, while the sweeping chorus of ‘Nightmares’ delivers stadium-sized harmonies from co-vocalists Emma Richardson and Russell Marsden. Best of all, though, is ‘I Guess I Know You Fairly Well’ – a slinking thing that erupts with riffs nothing short of – wait for it – mountainous.
