It’s been five years since Turn Blue, the last release of music from The Black Keys. In that time Dan Auerbach has formed other projects and produced records, while Patrick Carney has produced and worked on other records as well. After such a long time away, some bands would get lost in their absence, but with “Lo/Hi” The Black Keys return to where they left off as if time stood still.
The song is groovy and energetic, offering plenty of soul and snap. Auerbach’s vocals sound refreshed while Carney’s drums kick along with ease while the tremolo intertwines the squeal induced guitar sounds. Backing vocals add to the catchy sound, signalling that The Black Keys are back in a big way.
There’s no word of any follow-up release or if this is the first single off of an upcoming album just yet. There are also no dates posted for a tour from The Black Keys. You can stream the song on all streaming platforms, you can also purchase it digitally from all online shops.
