The Royal Concept’s highly anticipated new EP, Smile is available today! (Click here to get it!)
Check out the first single “Fashion” from the critically acclaimed Swedish alternative pop outfit. The track shimmies back and forth from bright synths into a robust pop hook.
To record the EP, the quartet— David Larson [vocals], Filip Bekic [guitar], Magnus Robert [bass], and Frans Povel [drums]—hit a Los Angeles studio earlier this year with producer Tony Hoffer [M83, Phoenix, Depeche Mode, The Kooks] behind the board. Now, the collection’s five tracks bristle with an unshakable energy and swaggering charm.
The Royal Concept ignited an international buzz with their 2013 smash “D-D-Dance.” It soared to #2 on Hype Machine, as follow-up songs “Gimme Twice” and “World on Fire” landed at #3 on #1. Their debut The Royal EP also saw them receive coverage from Rolling Stone, Billboard, FILTER Magazine, Alternative Addiction!, and more. Meanwhile, Examiner predicted, “there are big things ahead of this group” and Glamour proclaimed “Gimme Twice” “one of this summer’s big hit songs.” “On Our Way” became their biggest hit, landing over 25 syncs including Glee, FIFA 14, and more. Online, combined video views exceed 10.5 million.

The Royal Concept released their new summer-friendly single “On Our Way” on iTunes last month, and now the band has shared the music video for “On Our Way,” which you can check out below. Following up the incendiary “World On Fire,” “On Our Way” builds from a kinetic groove into another anthemic refrain punctuated by sunny whistling, hand claps, and evocative synths. Keep an eye out for their debut album announcement, coming soon.

Check out The Royal Concept taking on Daft Punk. With a brand new cover, the Swedish lads add their patented rock ‘n’ roll swing to the legendary French electro duo’s classic from Discovery, “Digital Love.”
Given the quartet’s penchant for danceable grooves and massive hooks, it’s an undeniable interpretation worth spinning again and again. It’s also the perfect tune to hold over fans until the release of the band’s forthcoming full-length debut for LAVA Records/Republic Records later this year.
In addition, after unveiling “World on Fire” online last month, the single is available on iTunes and other digital retailers. The group continues to stir up buzz stateside after cultivating a fervent and faithful following in Sweden. Their song “D-D-Dance” hit No.2 on Hype Machine, while “Gimme Twice” reached No.3.
