Fronted by Carl Barat, former member of the iconic gritty rock group The Libertines, Carl Barat & the Jackals are set to release their highly anticipated new single A Storm Is Coming via Cooking Vinyl Records on Monday 23rd February. After the success of first single ‘Glory Days’, the band will be touring the UK in early 2015 in what seems set to be an exciting year for the band.
Almost from the outset I knew this would be my type of song, the distorted guitar intro riff was great and it was nice how the outro mirrored this. It’s got a great grungy rock vibe with a toe tapping beat – maybe they’ve invented a new ‘dance grunge rock’ genre! The lyrics were also interesting – I found it hard to decide what they were actually singing about(!) but I liked how the ‘storm and rain’ theme continued throughout the track. I’ll definitely be listening to this again and can’t wait to hear more from the band.
A Storm Is Coming is out 23rd February.
