Single Review – Band of Skulls – So Good

With their fourth studio album By Default arriving on May 27th, Southampton trio Band of Skulls have unveiled another single from it with ‘So Good’. With it, they move away from the Hard Rock sound that is so well worn and adopt and slicker, Indie Pop riff with heavier, lingering bass lines beneath it. Emma Richardson takes up the vocals here and they add to the smoother feel of the track. They still retain their punchy delivery, but with this sound they offer up something akin to Savages with Pop sensibility. It is much better than their first single and bodes well for the album.
