It seems that the Black Keys have found a niche in the musical spectrum, nestled between the currently popular indie-centered music scene and more rocky bands. Their music is both retrospective and modern, blending bluesy vocals with Hendrix flavoured guitar in a simple style that feels fresh and interesting. Your Touch shows exactly why if you aren't already listening to Black Keys you should be.
The single bursts into life with a nostalgic-feel guitar riff, and from there it showcases everything a single should be. It's main power lies in its simplicity. Everything is perfectly balanced- no over the top lyrics or bursts of ear-splitting guitar, just a guitar, some drums, and the singer. It has the feel of an older generation of rock, sauntering along with lazy confidence and palpable charisma, but the other musical influences keep it feeling new and interesting, and never does your attention wane.
In all, it's really a just a very good song, and a worthy advertisement for the skills of the band itself. This is the perfect place for Black Keys newbies to begin, and be drawn into buying album after album.
