Forecastle Preview: U.S. Royalty

US Royalty

It seems quite fitting that a band called US Royalty sprung up in Washington DC where everyday life cannot be separated from our country’s political structure.  I’m not quite sure what it takes to be considered royalty in this country, but stunning crowds with raucous, guitar-fueled catchy pop songs and an explosive live show is probably as good start as any.  Though the band has only been around since early ’08, this band led by brothers John and Paul Thornley has been making waves and catching ears all over the place from SXSW, Spin, Nylon, and Brightest Young Things.  Comparisons of the band range from The Beach Boys to Cold War Kids to The Killers to Okkervil River.  Needless to say, this is one band that you will have you dancing and wishing you knew every word.
