Royal Blood: Lights Out

by Jason Stone


Royal Blood: “Lights Out” - 4 mins

There's something of a Doctor Who vibe about this promo for Royal Blood by Riff Raff's The Sacred Egg. The band are playing the track in a nondescript room in an unremarkable house when something strange starts to happen... and young women begin splashing about like an unlikely water-borne virus.

The effect is mesmerising and the scale of it builds to match the intensity of the track until both song and promo become pretty frenzied. It's a super way of underlining the intensity of the track and seems certain to ensure a lengthening of the sigle's virtual shelf-life.
