Debut Album Hints at Success to Come For Royworld

Aug 5, 2008
For a band that just came together barely two years ago, Royworld has certainly been active within that time period. Not only has the group managed to find a system that seems to work for them, they have produced enough music to complete an album, gained the notice of some of the biggest names in the industry and actually released a debut album. That is on top of completing a headline tour in the UK which attracted throngs of fans who have quickly become enamored of Royworld music.

The group came together at Goldsmiths college in 2006 in London and is comprised of Rod Futrille, singer, and drummer Gerry Morgan. Two Harrogate school chums, Tim Miles and Rob Parken complete the group on keyboards and guitar. Toss in Rod's brother Crispin Futrille, who assists with writing music for the group, and it is clear that this band has found a winning combination that many are predicting will make them not only the biggest band to emerge in 2008 but perhaps the decade as well.

Already the group has not only caught the attention of fans but some of the big names in the music industry as well. Radio 1 has practically taken the band under their wing in their eagerness to play tracks from Royworld's debut album. Even some of the more firmly established groups are sitting up and taking notice of this band that has barely made it out of the starting gate and is still managing to capture attention with their unique style, fresh lyrics and nostalgic feel.

The emerging sounds of their debut album clearly point to the fact that this is one group that cannot be ignored. Elasticity is a prime example of the group's dynamic sound, featuring a number of different vocal layers that flit between guitar riffs that can only be described as skyscraping and piano loops that are decidedly uptempo. That same feeling continues with Dust, although the latter piece features stronger piano elements and a passion that is much deeper than some of the other pieces.

Wish Ourselves Away is also included on the album and continues with many of the same elements, all of which offer a nice segue into Brakes, which is decidedly different, with its defiant acoustic style and slow-building emotion. Tinman and Brother are featured later in the album with a style that is similar enough to other pieces to be clearly identified as Royworld work and yet different enough to soundly stand on their own. Back Of My Mind, Astronaut and Science round out the album with slow-building tension that eventually climbs to a scale that is nothing short of epic. All total, this first debut album clearly hints at the talent and skill which this group seems to have embodied in their humble quartet. It certainly whets the appetite for more and suggests that the group will not only continue to experience success in the UK but internationally as well.
