New to You – Rue Royale

Some bands just try a bit too hard. The overtly stylised look, the artlessly crafted lyrics and the frenetic, attention-seeking angularity of so much modern music is just so…tiring. Where is the loucheness, the self-confidence to just be who you are? Letting the music go out and knowing it’ll find the people who like it.

Rue Royale seem to possess that quality. Redolent of Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens and even Fleetwood Mac at their dreamiest, this is music that isn’t hopping up and down desperate for attention. It’s loose, it’s confident and it’s lovely. Have a listen.
