Swedish indie-rock band the Royal Concept is at RecordBar this Wednesday

The first time I heard Stockholm’s the Royal Concept, I could have sworn on my life that I was listening to Phoenix. (I wasn’t the only one, to be fair.) With the band’s most recent music video, though, I’m convinced that the Royal Concept shares more style points with Fun frontman Nate Reuss. 

On the band’s self-titled debut EP, upbeat, catchy pop hooks press impatiently against lightweight drumbeats and run away with synths. It sounds like the Swedish foursome found the magic recipe for the perfect indie-pop album and added a gallon of Red Bull. Forget Phoenix – the Royal Concept is building a new indie throne.

With American Authors and Misterwives. Details here.
