U.S. Royalty

With the release of their debut album Mirrors coming up in January 25th2011, the D.C.-based band U.S. Royalty have made appearances at SXSW, NXNE and CMJ, gaining positive reviews from Esquire, SPIN, The New York Times and the Washington Post. Comparisons range from Local Natives to Fleet Foxes due to their acoustic guitar-led folk-pop numbers with a hazed edge and a sturdy drum beat, but it's the catchy hooks layering on top that really gets my toes tapping. Definitely worth a listen.
