Earlier in the month they released the EP Trap Door Music, which is available on bandcamp. Although two of the four songs have already featured; in the other two they are also able to add more colours to the palette as they have used this release opportunity to offer a range of their musical ideas.
In the second track on the EP, Fairweather, Beach Royals allow each element of the band to partake to fullest extend and thereby delivering a song which has a unity and cohesion that was missing in earlier takes and raises them to an outfit to whom instead of looking forward to hearing with a sense of intrigue to an outfit I look forward to with a keen sense of anticipation.
Newly out of the blocks with only a couple of tracks to hear Beach Royals take the listener on journey of streaming guitars that drift around the room akin to horses parading in a dressage arena. Whilst initially appearing equally aloof and wanting to present as only being adept at being adept – Beach Royals are able to capture the attention of the listener with the more empathetic percussion and vocal which aurally expresses of the paddling feet under the swan, giving the quartet their connection and personality.
It will be interesting to discover future directions of travel by Beach Royals and hope they descend from the altar of self-righteous guitar and allow that playing ability to become less of a sermon and more of a two-way relationship with the audience.
