Southampton's a long way from the Mississippi Delta. Not that you'd know it from listening to Band Of Skulls.
The trio have a knack for producing gnarled, bourbon soaked rock 'n' roll, all tattered denim and busted blues riffs. With new album 'Himalayan' becoming their most successful to date, the group have decided to piece together a new EP.
Due on July 27th, 'Hoochie Coochie' EP boasts a number of guest contributions. The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach re-works the title cut into a blistering display of bluesology, while Lindstrom and Blue Lotus take charge of remix duties.
Check out 'Hoochie Coochie (Dan Auerbach Mix)' below.
