About Royal Republic
If the abundance of explosive alternative rock thrillers on Royal Republic’s third album seek to remind us of anything, it’s this: Rock ’n’ Roll was never meant to be clever. That’s why “Uh Huh” speaks caveman, not Latin. That’s why “When I See You Dance With Another” begins with kamikaze drums and a man howling like he’s caught his fingers in a mousetrap. You won’t need a black belt in poetry to appreciate “Kung Fu Lovin’”, either. A brilliant and gloriously silly song comparing love-gone-wrong to a martial art, it lands its sonic drop-kick right on target.
Though the gutsy, fireball energy and sheer cockiness of 2010’s We Are The Royal and 2012’s Save The Nation put Malmo, Sweden’s Royal Republic on the map in some style, their latest opus Weekend Man is a bolder statement still; one that marks a great big ‘X’ where the treasure is buried. “Hearing these songs come together was a constant high”, says the band’s lanky, moustachioed frontman, Adam Grahn. “It took a little while, so we’re still processing the fact that the album’s actually done!”
About Ayron Jones
With the release and reception of his album Audio Paint Job, Ayron Jones has had a season of fervent media recognition in 2017. This coming after a year of intense creativity and many personal changes for the gifted singer/songwriter/guitarist.
“There’s nothing more American than rock ‘n’ roll,” Jones told the Seattle Times, “And in this time period, we need it now more than ever. Regardless of who is responsible, there’s divisiveness in this country that we’ve never seen since the civil-rights era. Rock ‘n’ roll embodies that American blues soul and spirit. Our generation, as millennials, has forgotten what it means to play rock ‘n’ roll.”
Featuring his most confessional and rocking songs yet, Ayron also embellishes with fiery blues licks and booming hip-hop vibes. The 14 track Audio Paint Job, showcases Ehssan Karimi on drums and Bob Lovelace on bass. This track, “features the vulnerable and lilting vocals of singer Scarlet Parke, the humbling strings of composer Andrew Joslyn, and the deft, upright bass playing of Evan Flory-Barnes.” (Times)
