More Than Just Royworld's Name is Unique

Jul 31, 2008
With names like Dust and Elasticity, and a group name like Royworld, you might find yourself asking just what exactly is behind this rapidly rising indie rock group. Comprised of just four members and featuring a keyboard as their leading instrument, the group has only been in existence for two years and just signed their first record deal earlier this year. So, it is not surprising that many indie rock fans are starting to sit up and take notice, yet wonder about this eclectic new band. Though they may have been inspired by well known music greats, Royworld is not like any other band that has emerged in the last few years.

In fact, if there is one thing that is certain, it is that Royworld is not even like any other indie band most fans have yet to come across. Take their name for instance. You might assume that at least one person in the group would bear the name Roy. That would be the logical assumption, but not so. Rod, Gerry, Tim and Miles are the four members of Royworld. Not a Roy in sight, not even in the creative writing force behind the group, Rod's brother Crispin. So, where on earth did they come up with such a unique and catchy name? According to band members, it was Rod who first stumbled across the name when he saw a bowling alley in a small town in Wales that bore the unlikely name of Royworld. He suggested the name to the other members of the group and the rest, as they say, is history. Since that time the quartet has been unassumingly known as Royworld.

The distinctive edge of Royworld does not stop with just their name. One of Royworld's earliest singles to be released, 'Elasticity', has gained a large following based on its one of a kind sound as well as the message that the song puts forth. Although the song hints at classic 1980s pop, it definitely has its own unique and modern elements as well. Frontman Futrille has described the song as telling the story of a man who is literally paranoid about growing older and simultaneously trying to hold onto his youth. In fact, many of Royworld's songs seem to take on a story-telling format.

The inventive lyrics of Royworld's songs have certainly also attracted numerous followers as well. 'Dust', which was released in May of 2008, was quickly snatched upon by critics as offering a depth that is encouraging, rich and reflecting.

The group's debut album was released early in June of 2008 and it would already seem that this album will propel the group to even further acclaim and success. As of yet, plans have not been announced for a second album, but considering the popularity which the group has already attained, it is fairly safe to say that Royworld will certainly be heading back to the studios before long to begin working on new sound for a follow-up album.
