HBO’s series Vinyl has inspired a lot of great covers, including Aimee Mann’s take on Carpenters’ “Yesterday Once More”, Julian Casablancas’ re-imagining of The VelvetUnderground , and everyone from Iggy Pop to Alison Mosshart covering classic rock and punk tracks . But the show has also led to some brand new recordings, like the track from Royal Blood , “Where Are You Now?”

The UK rockers were apparently inspired to write the song after seeing the first trailer for Vinyl. “Hearing Richie Finestra talk about the first time you heard a song that made your hairs on the back of your neck stand up or made you wanna dance or kick someone’s arse,” bassist/singer Mike Kerr. “I just wanted to write a song that gave me that sort of buzz.”

Well, mission accomplished. “Where Are You Now?” is a dirty, slinking number with lines reminiscent of Queens of the Stone Age at their most pronounced. There’s a sensuality in all that noise, especially with Kerr singing lyrics like, “I’ve tasted every person and they don’t taste like you,” which we’re very down with.”
