Royal Blood come roaring back, with a suitably powerful visual accompaniment to the rousing, very catchy Trouble's Coming by Lx.

Combining both performance and elements of narrative, Lx draws upon the band's visual history to make something fresh. So there's a sketched storyline involving with a brooding threat of violence - and involving the RB boys Mike and Ben finally setting off in their vintage Cortina GXL. That's blended with a performance by the duo which is slick and stylised - and, crucially, it's as viscerally engaging as the narrative.  

In a departure from his usual stamping ground of hip hop and grime, Lx shows that his strength in delivering charismatic performances, within a framework of strongly art directed and VFX-enhanced set-ups translates extremely well for the Brighton-based duo's banging rock tune. No trouble at all.
