Already this British pair have been attracting grandiose comparisons. Some detect traces of early Pixies in their surging garage rock while to others their bluesy racket marks them as heirs to Led Zeppelin. They certainly don't lack for big-name cheerleaders, with Arctic Monkeys among those on the record discussing the duo's genius (they open the Monkeys’ London shows in May). They've also been likened to Black Keys and White Stripes – comparisons which come as little surprise to singer Mike Kerr.
"The first thing you do when you hear something is you want to compare it," he said last year. "You want a reference point. We’re obviously going to get compared to two-pieces because the nature of being a two-piece is that you're all kind of trying to do something similar. It’s funny though, because there are other comparisons which haven’t been said which surprise me. Them Crooked Vultures. That’s a huge, huge influence for us. And The Raconteurs, and Foo Fighters… just big rock bands that we get obsessed with.”
