When Imad-Roy El-Amine isn’t spinning as one half of SoySauce, he’s making “conscious pop” as Royal. The Silver Lake denizen recently leaked his new single, “Queen Of France,” as a follow-up to his debut EP Cycles. The track opens with minimal synth notes, sharp percussion effects, and a crooning vox until the sporadic, beatcentric indie pop production pounds it all into a high BPM outro. Absolutely serene-cum-vigor.
“We’re staring at the same old stars.”
Royal will perform on August 1st at Hard Summer Music Festival.
