These are modern 'garage rock' influenced bands. Garage rock has influence from rhythm & blues, punk rock, and traditional rock-n-roll. The mainstream success of 00's bands like the white stripes, the hives, the vines, the strokes, and the black keys popularized the genre.

Modern Pop-rock/Modern rock would be what I consider your examples. It owes a lot to the 'garage rock' revival of the 00's, but goes for a more polished and produced sound, and with more pop influenced composition and hooks. The Arctic Monkeys or Royal Deluxe would be a good example of modern pop-rock. Comparing the Black Keys albums Rubber Factory or Thickfreakness to Brothers is also a good comparison of the subtle difference.
