Royal Blood Share New Single ‘Pull Me Through’: Watch
Royal Blood have shared their new single Pull Me Through, the latest to be taken from their forthcoming album Back To The Water Below. Watch the video, directed by filmmaker and photographer Polocho, below.
Frontman Mike Kerr said: “Pull Me Through is ultimately about giving up on persevering alone and finding strength in asking for help.”
He continued: “It’s a song that is driven by the lyrics and melody, as opposed to the riffs doing the heavy lifting. Despite being piano-led, it feels very much like a missing limb to our artillery and a track we’ve been eager to perform live.”
Back To The Water Below was produced by band members Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher at their home studio in Brighton. In a statement, Thatcher said, “I think this record was about letting the ideas take us where they needed to go. If there was a song that was calling us to do something that wasn’t typically what we’re known for, that’s where we’re going to go. The songs are in charge and if that means having a record that’s quite varied that’s what we’re going to go for, rather than trying to shoehorn everything into the same world. As a result, we’ve made a record that’s a bit of a rollercoaster. It’s everything we could do.”
Kerr added, “No-one saw the years of us playing in loads of bands to no-one, that all gets swept under the carpet because the other story is magical and much more wondrous. Luck is where passion meets opportunity. We got our golden ticket and walked out as tiny ninjas. We were in the right place at the right time, and we have to remember to give ourselves the credit that we didn’t get into this position by winning a quiz show, we put in a serious amount of work. It’s taken us four albums to realise this isn’t luck, we’re good and we’re committed to this.”
