It’s been three years since Hooray for Earth’s last full-length — the big, potent True Loves — but a first pass through “Keys” from the forthcoming Racy reveal they’ve lost none of their grandeur and power. The song is gigantic: 20-ton guitar riffs slashing between Noel Heroux’s sweetly-soaring vocals. It’s the first great rock song of the summer, arriving a few months early.
