Seductive As Sin: The Sci-Fi Yacht Rock of Royale’s “1981”


Chicago indie-rock band Royale‘s new EP comes out tomorrow, so what better time to introduce you to their sound, dubbed “sci-fi yacht rock” by the band? Lead single “1981” opens with a seductive instrumental intro, soon coupled with vocals which echo Joshua Tree-era Bono. It’s a sound I certainly could stand hearing more of, so the EP’s release can’t come soon enough! Give this one a listen and spread the word. And if you need something visual to go along with it, check out the band’s animated clip for “1981” below.
