Theme: Summer Timing Playlist of Summer’s Must See (and hear) Artists
Tracks 9 – 13
9). Bartender – The Royalty
My boyfriend is into some pretty heavy stuff. We are totally opposite in most of our taste in music. So when he is into what I am streaming à la Spotify these days, I know that it’s something really special.
This was the case with The Royalty (specifically this song). As we listened over and over in just the last weeks here, I found something so familiar yet couldn’t quite place what it was. Maybe that’s the appeal though. In any case, there is definitely a chord that echoes of soulful sixties-doo-wop paired gorgeously with Nicole Boudreau’s powerful vocals and lyrics that inspired my description “reckless sincerity”- singing of sweet naivety and wishful thinking yet obviously a strong woman with “street smarts” who sees right through you (and will sing about the view there)! The Royalty is touring right now and I am sure you will catch them throughout the summer.
