THE PICTUREBOOKS – SINGLE REVIEW

The Picturebooks – The Rabbit and the Wolf (Another Century) 
The Picturebooks - The Rabbit & The Wolf


Release Date: Out Now

Imagine if Royal Blood were German, massively in to motorbikes and had sought inspiration from the Icelandic football fans for their latest musical output. You with me? Right, that’s essentially The Picturebooks and they’re freaking awesome. New single ‘The Rabbit and the Wolf’ is as unapologetic as it is glorious as it opens with the chug of a motorcycle engine followed by tribal tub-thumping and some bluesy slide guitar. It’s classic modern duo stuff with the guitar and drums duelling whilst being refereed by some aggressive vocals but this is heavier than the Black Keys, more intense than Royal Blood and way sexier than the White Stripes. Throw in the sexiest music video I’ve seen in a while and, well, a freaking bell crescendo and you’ve got a winner. A massive, hairy, distortion fuelled winner that will probably have impregnated all the women reading this by now, and some of the men.
