Two people are rarely able to sound as brutal as The Black Keys do. But then again, two people are rarely like Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney: loud, a little imbalanced and overdosed on blues, glam and soul. The Black Keys have, with great negligence, muscled their beast into all the dark corners of this world, and it is therefore only fitting that they are on their way to becoming a staple of personal music libraries everywhere.
After playing "Lonely Boy" apart and together for almost a year, it is all too obvious that the little secret you wished be your own is blown. But why acidic when it is close enough that the duo from Akron, Ohio actually enters the stage in Slottsskogen, Gothenburg. Way Out West looks after his own interests and the best is only good enough for the best. Follow?
The Black Keys is an American rock duo formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar, vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums). The group began as an independent act founded after the duo dropped out of college, and they eventually emerged among a second wave of popular garage rock revival artists from the 2000s.
After signing with indie label Alive, the group released its debut album, The Big Come Up (2002), which was recorded in Carney's basement and forged their raw blues rock sound. Over the next decade, the Black Keys built an underground fanbase through near-constant touring of small clubs, frequent album releases and music festival appearances, and extensive licensing of their songs. Their third album, Rubber Factory (2004), received critical acclaim and boosted the band's profile, eventually leading to a record deal with major label Nonesuch Records in 2006. After self-producing and recording their first four records in makeshift studios, the duo completed Attack & Release (2008) in a professional studio and hired producer Danger Mouse, a frequent collaborator with band. The group's commercial breakthrough came in 2010 with Brothers, which along with its popular single "Tighten Up", won three Grammy Awards. Their 2011 follow-up El Camino received strong reviews and peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 chart, leading to the first arena concert tour of the band's career.
