Drenge say Royal Blood are ‘too poppy’ for them

The Loveless brothers say the duo's songs are a 'bit clean' for their tastes

Drenge have said they think Brighton duo Royal Blood are “too poppy” for them.

Castleton duo Drenge, comprised of brothers Eoin and Rory Loveless, have said that, while they like Royal Blood as people, their music isn’t heavy enough for them.

“They’re really nice guys and they come up to us at every show and say hi, it’s just their stuff’s way too poppy,” Eoin Loveless told Digital Spy. “It’s just a bit clean for me, but they’re lovely guys and I’m really glad they’re doing well,” he added.

Brighton duo Royal Blood pulled one of the biggest crowds at Reading Festival over the weekend, showcasing tracks from their debut album including ‘Come On Over’, ‘Figure It Out’, ‘Little Monster’ and ‘Out Of The Black’.

The band also look set to reach Number One on the Official UK Albums Chart this week with their self-titled debut.

The band’s album was released on Monday (August 25) and was ahead of Ariana Grande’s ‘My Everything’ Wednesday’s midweek stage. The final chart placings will be revealed on BBC Radio 1 on Sunday (August 31).
