The London band has already nabbed a song of the week for another track on their latest album, I See You, and now they’re back for more. While tracks such as album opener “Dangerous,” and “On Hold” are good examples of the band evolving and moving into the future, “A Violent Noise” might remind you of the sounds that grabbed so many of us back in 2009 when we got to know and love the debut album.

Romy, Oliver, and Jamie will be back in Chicago on May 1 for a sold out show at the Aragon Ballroom.
