The B lack Keys Turn Blue

Australian T3 - - MUSIC TO YOUR EARS -

It’s hard to be­lieve that The Black Keys are still here. Let alone thriv­ing. Hav­ing spent years as a cult band record­ing raw two-piece blues-rock, the Keys seemed to al­most overnight be­come one of the big­gest bands in the world. Now, 12 years on from their first al­bum, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Car­ney (Meg White to Auerbach’s Jack) con­tinue to edge away from the min­i­mal­ism of their ear­lier record­ings, re­plac­ing it with a slick, full, but more con­ven­tional sound. But we can’t blame them. There’s only so much you can do with one gui­tar and one drum kit, right?
