YOUNG & DANGEROUS
While their 2014 debut album garnered them comparisons to The Darkness, there’s little that’s tongue-in-cheek about English hard-rock throwbacks The Struts. Instead, they’re out to sincerely revive the genre’s most headbanging and hip-thrusting moments. On their second album, the band taps into the supercharged swagger of The Rolling Stones circa “Brown Sugar” ("Primadonna Like Me”), revels in the raunchy excesses of ’70s glam (“I Do It So Well”), and teams up with pop singer Kesha for a fierce duet (“Body Talks”). Pumping even its Britpop-like power ballads with adrenaline (“Somebody New”), YOUNG & DANGEROUS is aimed at anyone who thinks modern rock has gotten a little too genteel.
