Fashion / Sound Off: 10 Questions with American Royalty
It’s hard to categorize the triad of talent that is psych-pop Brooklyn-based band American Royalty. Honing rock and roll riffs, upbeat synths and bluesy vocals, the innovative sounds of these dudes are enough to make any music lover weak in the knees – think of them as the future of music. Recently, we got to chat with the band about matching hi-tops to hair color, bringing back overalls and how (apparently) Chumbawamba song lyrics are words to live by!
