PRAISE FOR “TYPHOONS”
“Swaggering.” – NME
“Mesmerising.” – Kerrang!
“A dose of back-to-basics rock’n’roll turned up loud is just the tonic.” – DIY
“If Josh Homme and Muse got stuck in a disco together, they’d have come up with something like this.”– Louder
“A treasure trove of all the things that have rocketed Royal Blood to the top.” – Gigwise
Royal Blood’s relentless return continues as they today unveil the official video for “Typhoons”. Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher hit the rooftop of a carpark next to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to deliver a potent performance of the track. As the track reverberates across the London skyline, Royal Blood cast a magnetic spell across the city resulting in hundreds of people sprinting to join them. As a storm erupts, the duo are surrounded: a typhoon looms large over them, its movements mirrored by the intense, spiralling reaction of the crowd below.
The video represents their first collaboration with Quentin Deronzier. Renowned for his visuals for Drake, Orelsan and Kanye West, the director puts a new slant on Royal Blood’s aesthetic, adding otherworldly cinematics and inner city style. It also feels like an apt stylistic successor to the ‘’Trouble’s Coming’’ video, which was directed by Dir. LX (Dave, Bugzy Malone, Kojo Funds).
