Bands who make their mark in today’s densely packed musical landscape with a “throwback” sound usually don’t stick around for very long. They’re fun for what they are, but they often can’t seem to grab a foothold like the bands they emulate. While I love The Darkness with all my might, their brand of ’70s arena rock never hooked into the collective consciousness as strongly as their debut record. The criminally overlooked UK rockers Lucky Soul have had a similar issue. These bands can either stick to their guns and find their niche or, like Kings of Leon, completely revamp their sound to appeal to the masses.
