What started like a quiet buzz not unlike a mosquito in a winterlandscape became quite a roaring Buzz engine.
Everyone from NME to Time Out to Blogsters in Luxemburg is blown away by their new record, Let It Beep, but only a few have been able to see them on their rare liveshows,
think The Mae Shi with Beards kill Broken Social Scene and then forget about it and please just see it yourself it's absolutely amazing what these guys pull off live.
ON TOUR IN THE UK FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME
Acclaim for Royal Bangs ---->
“a near perfect balance between anthemic songsmithery and dance floor irresistibility… stunning.”
NME – 9/10
“Royal Bangs successful merge glitchy electronics and epic dance-along indie with exceptional panache… ‘Let It Beep’ manages to be both refreshingly innovative and instantly loveable in one glorious manic bundle.”
The Fly – 4.5/5 *****
“Move over Animal Collective, White Denim, Yeasayer and MGMT; there’s a new gang in town and their name is Royal Bangs… For seriously smart fun, you’d be hard pressed to top this”
Time Out – 4 Stars ****
“belting garage rock, quirky indie pop and bamboozling electronica, all served up in one smart and super-confident package”
Uncut – 4 Stars ****
“The Knoxville quintet happily fuse palatable melodies with layer upon layer of intricate guitar lines, cascading drums and percussive noise; along with interwoven keys, drum loops and fraught vocals… Definitely worth checking out”
RockSound – 8/10
“They take the basic template of old school rock’n’roll and then distort it to cool, contemporary effect… “It’s manic, it’s moody… it’s magnificent.”
The Sun – 4 Stars ****
“Let It Beep follows in the crossover wake of MGMT, Passion Pit and Animal Collective, playing fast and loose with a whole bunch of genres… This album is a rollicking good time”
Metro – 4 Stars ****
“Adding a dose of fizzing, wonky electro to the tried and trusted rock’n’roll formula, Royal Bangs have created a sound that’s akin to a collision between accelerated atomic particles of Radiohead and The Stooges”
Classic Rock – 7/10
“Royal Bangs’ mission: to write a stellar pop-rock masterpiece… From the opening glint of ‘New Scissors’ it seems that they may have just about done it. The energy barely lets up as the Radiohead-tinged ‘Handcuff Killa’ grooves its way into your soul… If this evidence is anything to go by, Royal Bangs do indeed breed champions.”
“Each track drips with guitars singing their hearts out among a dirty, jerking tussle between each layer of sound, with roughTennessee drawl adding depth to the cataclysmic blend of sounds.”
“a mash up of 70s chart-pop melody, 80s electro and 90s indie rock”
THIS IS DEFINITELY A BAND YOU SHOULDNT MISS!
