Black Keys You're The One Single

The Black Keys have of late been picking up acclaim from the most unlikely of places with their stripped-down take on blues-rock; even Mr Thom Yorke himself has declared himself a fan, their influence can arguably be heard on some of Radiohead's more guitar-based new material.

However, You're The One is pure Lennon, the hypnotic minor key cadences and spacious 1968 style production make it sound like I'm So Tired's even more world-weary cousin. That's not to dismiss the Ohio duo as dull retro copyists though, there's enough originality in the melody and delivery to make this a great introduction to the band for any latecomers.
