The Last Royals are Eric James (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Mason Ingram (drums) and they hail from New York. They play a kind of harmless indie pop and the songs are their debut, self titled EP aren’t going to make any huge waves but their earnest lyrics and James’ good guy vocal style are going to win them fans. Their debut full length is due out in August and I hope they are able to go a little bit deeper than just your average three and a half minute pop song, because the potential is definitely there. Here is the track “Crystal Vases.” It has a tone so upbeat you will forget that it is actually a dismal breakup song.
P.S. I was going to post a live video of the band performing this song but they looked like douchey Strokes doppelgangers and it made me not want to listen to the song. If you want to see it click here.
