This perfectly disheveled Swedish four-piece have been carving out taut, just-out-of-bed indie-pop for the last few years, culminating in their addictive, sugar-pop debut EP. Since then we've had the standalone, synth-riddled single 'World On Fire', which moved the band on from jerky Strokes-lite indie and into large, widescreen soft-rock. And now comes something rather different. At times 'On Our Way' borders on 'hands in the air' Euro-pop. Actually, scrap that. All the way through this sounds exactly like 'hands in the air' Euro-pop. Don't be cynical. Enjoy the ride. Because this is ENORMOUS amounts of fun. [...]

@TheRoyalCNCPT Género: Synth pop. The Royal Concept , banda de Estocolmo que debutó con EP homónimo el pasado verano y que tiene filtrada hace meses a World on Fire por las redes, aunque la fecha oficial de salida ha sido el 15 de enero del 2013. Canción sin dilaciones, roza lo comercial, aire MGMT , sideral, pero resulta un divertido artefacto con el que quemar zapatillas.

Los suecos The Royal Concept son responsables del mejor Ep del pasado año, y también culpables de parecerse demasiado a Phoenix, algo que les perdonamos si son capaces de facturar canciones tan buenas como este World On Fire, tema inédito que salió a la luz hace algunas semana y que ahora esta disponible como single digital.
"The pieces come together and I let it all go" I'm keeping the focus on Scandinavia today, because after months and months of underwhelming output, the region's position as the Motherland of Pop is reinstated. Seriously, more amazing songs have come out of this area in the past two months than in all of 2012 (and very few of them actually have anything to do with Melodifestivalen). The Royal Concept used to be known as Concept Store (they really like concepts, don't they?) and I wrote about them a long time ago. They've been chugging along [...]
Screw the Oscars! Now that the site is back up we can continue the (very late) Best of 2012 Awards! So many great songs last year. The second 6 months of jams did more than stand up to the first . So many genres colliding in this list. Beautiful songs. Funny songs. Innovative songs. Simple songs. Dance songs. Rock songs. All songs that have spent much time wedged in the recesses of my brain. Ultimately its Kids of 88 and Years and Years battling it out for the top spot. Two songs I would [...]
Daft Punk has been on an 8 year hiatus from releasing new albums, and if you're anything like me, you're super bummed out about it. Yep, super bummed out . There is a light at the end of the tunnel: they plan to release their a new studio album in May, but until then what will you do? Will you eat chocolates to help comfort you until you gain 75 pounds? Will you buy a new puppy to keep you company on those long, Daft-Punk-less nights? Will you decide to volunteer at your local homeless shelter to put [...]
Quando o The Royal Concept postou ontem a capa acima com os dizeres "tomorrow", a primeira coisa que passou pela nossa cabeça é que se tratava de um novo single ou do aguardado disco de estreia dos suecos, agora "americanizados" para a gravação do trabalho. A surpresa, na verdade, se tratava de mais uma gravação da série de covers que andam fazendo, dando sequencia à sua versão de "Cobrastyle" , da Robyn / Teddybears , que fizeram no mês passado. Apesar do coração pixelado ter passado despercebido por muitos, a bola de vez é [...]
You may have heard of The Royal Concept from the FIFA13 soundtrack, or due to their striking resemblance to Phoenix. Either way, they are an extremely talented group in their own right. Nothing shows this off better than this incredible cover of Daft Punk's stellar tune "Digital Love". Can't believe how much they nail Yngwie Malmsteen's guitar solo!
The Royal Concept have made good on their promise to record a series of fan-requested covers , and lucky for us, one fan was smart enough to request Daft Punk's iconic "Digital Love." The remake is heavy on the vocoder, but also relies on a bevy of keyboards, guitars, and drums to give an awesome live feel to one of the silky-smoothest tracks of the last millennium. The Stockholm-based quartet even released the video of the recording-filmed in black and white and (naturally) full of goofy winter hats. Turn the clock back to February 14th and [...]

The Royal Concept is a new Stockholm-based indie band formed by band members of Robyn, Tove Styrke and Veronica Maggio - in 2011. To celebrate the release of their current single, 'World Of Fire', the band has made a rather impressive cover of Daft Punk's seminal track 'Digital Love'. Now, normally we probably would post a cover of a track, but once you see a full band recreate the song using an array of keyboards, guitars, drums and their own vocals, you'll soon realise is this is a probably the closest we might get to a Daft Punk [...]

I've been meaning to do another one of these for a while now and today I was really just in the mood and had enough time on my hands to put it together, so here you go. This is kind of just a mix of alternative/indie/some electronic originals and remixes I've been listening too a lot over the past couple of months. Songs most noteworthy are: one of Foals ' latest songs, titled "My Number" off their recently released album Holy Fire (which I highly suggest you check out), Wild Party 's catchy hit "When I Get [...]
According to the all-knowing internet tome Wikipedia an "Amuse Bouche" is: A single, bite-sized hors d’œuvre that are offered for free and according to the chef's selection alone, which are served both to prepare the guest for the meal and to offer a glimpse into the chef's approach to the art of cuisine. Maybe I have been watching too much "Top Chef: Seattle", or maybe I really need to have some lunch, but Kick Kick Snare would like to present you with this months "Amuse Oreille" (YES THAT IS TRADEMARKED, SO BACK OFF IT) This month's listening [...]
