The calendar page may now say 2014 but some great new music released at the end of last year deserve to be heard in the new year. “Embassy” from Leeds-based group WHITE ROYAL is the perfect example. Armed with an always captivating slow burn quality, “Embassy” takes me on a riveting audible journey filled with gorgeous sounds and emotion consuming textures. From the slow melodic builds to the mini bursts of musical energy, I am completely on the proverbial edge of my seat all the way through. I love how the vocals feel like thoughts popping up inside of my own head. As if I am internally struggling with trying to deal with a bad experience from my past or maybe something painful that just happened. In any event, “Embassy” tugs at all the right contemplative strings and leaves me wanting to hear more. And hopefully that will happen real soon!
WHITE ROYAL is an interesting new band and will go as far as members Josh Hobson, Jonty Brown and somewhat secret third member/producer Thomas Balforth want to take it. The foundation is laid with “Embassy”, a fantastic debut track that will be a tough act to follow, but a solid place to build great music from. Only time will tell!
