Excellent, best new music I've heard in quite awhile. Good beat, good tempo, like the lyrics. Creative music. Don't know anything about the band (yet), but I like them!
i second that - awesome sound, good lyrics, this will be graet in my car with the windows down singing (badly) at the top of my lungs. Why haven't heard of rhem before?
Hate the new direction
They went from being a fresh version of Phoenix (and one of my favorite up and coming bands) to being a genereic indie pop band. There sound is no longer unique and the music just blends together with all of the other by the numbers pop garbage. At least I still have that original EP.
About The Royal Concept
First attracting worldwide attention with a self-produced hit "D-D-Dance" -- which introduced their Phoenix-like mix of sunny pop and electronic elements -- Stockholm's indie dance-rockers the Royal Concept feature vocalist/guitarist David Larson, guitarist Filip Bekic, bassist Magnus Robert, and drummer Frans Povel. Early in 2012, the band -- who settled on their moniker that April -- signed to Lava Records, which released the group's self-titled debut EP that June. Their 2013 debut album, Goldrushed, featured the hit single "On Our Way," which gained exposure on the soundtrack to FIFA 14, as well as on TV shows such as Glee and Catfish. Produced by Tony Hoffer (who previously worked with acts such as M83, the Kooks, and Depeche Mode) and released in 2015, the Smile EP saw the group take a glam-inspired change of direction. ~ Heather Phares & James Wilkinson
