You Can't Judge A Band's Music By It's Publicity Shot

Here is a clear case of looking at a band's photos and immediately forming an opinion of what they sound like. Point in case: The Struts.
Ok what comes to mind?  They probably listened to a lot of 70's, 80's music.  They are The Ramones meets the Rubinoos.  Well I was totally off the mark. It sounds like they got into their parents Led Zeppelin and Marc Bolan.  First, watch the video for I Just Know without the sound and you'll think not another one of these punk/new wave/indie wannabees.   Someone shot a lot of black and white footage, made it look vintage as if it were shot in a rundown and ramshackle era (which could actually be present day).   

Of Note: Apparently there are quite a few bands around the globe named The Struts. These Struts are from Derby
