Night Beats has always been a band lead by Danny Lee Blackwell’s vision of psych induced garage sounds. From their earliest releases to their last, the band has had more swagger than most in their genre. With a new album Outlaw R&B coming in June, the follow up to 2019’s Dan Auerbach produced Myth Of A Man is a return to the grizzled garage tones of the band’s earlier years. On their new single “Revolution,” they tread new territory while touching on their past.
The song has an upbeat stride that matches the swaggering guitar fuzz that emanates throughout. The way the song is constructed, it takes you to a more rock based bluesy tone that meets the vocals in a perfect intersection. The garage psych touches here remind you of the band’s earlier releases without feeling rehashed. The attached video has this horror movie vibe to it that juxtaposes the music itself, but works as a visual narrative to let the song breathe.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. “Revolution” is ready to listen to on all streaming platforms. Outlaw R&B is ready for preorder from Fuzz Club Records ahead of its June 04 release.
