The Minutes - Black KeysThe Minutes – Black Keys

The Minutes are a band from Dublin who formed back in 2006 and they are influenced by old skool bands such as The Smiths and Thin Lizzy, they are set to head out on tour in Novermber with Flogging Molly and to coincide with that they are releasing their first ever UK single ‘Black Keys’.

‘Black Keys’ is quite a powerful sounding song about New York yet has an really old skool edge, the vocals from Mark Austin are loud and clear and exactly what you would expect from a front man, whilst the instrumental work has bit of everything from a tasty horns sections to extremely bouncy basslines which will have you jumping higher than if you were on a bouncy castle.

Overall ‘Black Keys’ is a great song which has a lot going on at any one second, the more I listen to the song the more it grows on me, anyone heading out to the Flogging Molly tour are going to have a blast watching The Minutes.
