Roya is a Brooklyn-based band with a strong pedigree in the local and national scene, with members from notable acts Habibi, The Clean, Grooms, and Angry Angles. Musically, they tread the now-familiar world of post-punk groove, with touches of 60s pop and a focus on lyrics at the forefront that allow them to sing about even the darkest of subjects with a deceptively upbeat vibe. They stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to give us a first look at and listen to what they have in store as their debut album looms.
Roya’s self-titled debut record will be released via Burger Records on March 5, 2017.
