The Royal Concept- America quickly became like a second home for Sweden's The Royal Concept. In fact,
their stateside arrival has been quite a long time in the making for vocalist David Larson.
"When I was a kid, I used to say, 'The first time I go to America will be because of
music!'," he smiles. "Lo and behold, that's exactly how and why it happened."
In 2012, that anxiously-awaited dream came true shortly after the quartet - Larson,
Filip Bekic [guitar], Magnus Robert [bass], and Frans Povel [drums] - topped Hype
Machine with not one but two songs, "D-D-Dance" and "Gimme Twice.” A myriad of
labels clamored to sign them over the course of the next month, but LAVA proved the
perfect fit. The band proceeded to hit U.S. soil for the first time, playing alongside
everybody from Imagine Dragons and Alex Clare to Atlas Genius, further generating
buzz and developing a fervent following.
When they returned to Sweden in early 2013, they garnered all sorts of new inspirations
and experiences to cull from as they worked on what would eventually become their
2013 offering the Royal EP [LAVA/Republic Records]. By happenstance, the track
"World On Fire" leaked and quickly became a fan favorite in January. Merging sizzling
synths, dynamic guitars, and a devilishly danceable hook, the song further fueled their
American Authors- We express our experiences as a shared unit, through music and an agreement of sound. With lows come highs and fighting always has an end. We accept struggle and are passionate about the lives we lead. We create the music that comes naturally to us and we're not afraid of change. We are thrilled about the present. We all have a story to tell, whether it's audible, visual, silence or motion. We are constantly creating new moments to share. We are American Authors from Brooklyn, New York.
MisterWives- MisterWives was formed in 2012 where the three New York natives set out to produce, and perform their independently composed music. Their sound has been described as indie-pop-soul and has been well received in some of New York’s most notable venues. The core members include Mandy Lee (vocals/keys) William Hehir (bass) and Etienne Bowler (drums). Their live set incorporates other musicians that contribute sax, trumpet, guitar, and strings to their well-rounded sound. The band is currently working on their EP that will be released in the spring of 2013.
