Sex On Fire and It Has Risen to the Top of the Chart!!!
Kings of Leon has broke up the charts to climb up to No.1 in the Billboard Rock Albums this week. I've personally been rooting for them to get the top spot ever since i started listening to their "Only By Night" album since 2 months back.
Kings of Leon which consist of brothers Anthony "Caleb" Followill (vocals and guitar), Ivan "Nathan" Followill (drums, percussion and vocals) and Michael "Jared" Followill (bass guitar and vocals), with their cousin Cameron "Matthew" Followill (guitar and vocals) which hail from Nashville, Tennessee.
They have been around since 2003 with their breed of southern rock and psychedelic riffs. But they really broke the glasses with their latest album which is "Only By Night" and that album has been certified platinum in the United States by the RIAA for selling one million copies in less than a year after its release.
The album also have received a nomination for Best Rock Album at the 51st Grammy Awards with the single "Sex on Fire" receiving two nominations for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best Rock Song.
Personally i really feel in love with the track "Sex on Fire". The song is just so haunting yet retro but still has the modern alternative feel. And their video is just simply amazing.
"Use Somebody" would be the second single which won't be strange to most people cause it has been on heavy rotation on any radio station in the world. With the haunting background echoes and melodramatic voice of Anthony's simply gives chills.
Overall i have to give a 2 thumbs up for "Only By Night". It's a must get album for all music lovers who loves some soul in their music.
