Stream The Black Keys’ New Song, “Fever”
By Matt Grosinger on March 25, 2014
Ever since Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney let Danger Mouse into their lives on Attack & Release, The Black Keys have become undeniably funkier. The guitar riffs have become slinkier and the drums have transitioned from “smash the shit out of them” to “smash the shit out of them, but also two-step to this.”
The Black Keys’ new track, “Fever,” from their upcoming Turn Blue LP, is the sort of groovy fare that recent fans have come to expect from the Akron duo after El Camino, but also definitely the kind of song that will have longtime fans yearning for a The Big Come Up era garage face-melter. I am excited to hear all the tracks from this upcoming album, and I hope that Pat Carney smashes the shit out of his drums in all the ways that only he can.
