Band of Skulls ‘Asleep At The Wheel’ – The Song of the Week for 3/31/2014
Released via Vagrant Records, “Asleep At The Wheel” is the official 1st single of Himalayan, the 3rd studio album by alternative rockers Band of Skulls
Band of Skulls hails from Southampton, England and are readying their 3rd studio album, Himalayan, set for a March 31, 2014 release (that’s today as of this writing!). The band has a killer alternative/garage/indie rock sound, similar in some respects to bands like Wolfmother, Jack White’s two side projects The Dead Weather and The Raconteurs and perhaps to a lesser degree Cage the Elephant and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. I am curious to see what direction this new album goes it. The band hasn’t had a smash hit single yet but this new single from the upcoming album might be it.
How strong of a single is “Asleep At The Wheel” and will it put the band on the pervervial map? Sound off in the comments section and tweet me @MusicTrajectory.

“I went upstate
Asleep at the wheel, yeah
Double the win
The old leather feel, yeah
And I’m safe and sound
In equal distant dibs
My feet and that detail
‘Cause where we are going
Is anyone’s guess”
