Single release: People Like Us by The Boy Royals
Release date: August 13, 2012
Label: Require Records

Newport’s The Boy Royals bring their sound together with a love of iconic British bands, such as Manic Street Preachers, The Who and The Jam, whilst blending it with the spikier side of indie rock. Their attitude and ability to write such anthemic songs has seen the band sharing stages up and down the UK with the likes of Hard-Fi, Lostprophets, Feeder and The View.

The Boy Royals have gained support from numerous BBC Radio 1 and 6 music DJ’s, with their previous single Teenage Sky. Steve Lamacq chose them as his ‘New Favourite Band’ whilst Huw Stephens selected their single to be his ‘Next Hype’, as well as inviting them to play one of his select showcase nights.

The boys look the part too. Strong alliances with the Pretty Green and Weekend Offender clothing labels have led to the band making some suave appearances at fashion events, notably playing Berlin Fashion Week. 

People Like Us, with its uplifting cannonade of drums and pseudo political swing, has all the potential to be chanted along with by many walks of British life. B Side Summer’s Playground is also a must for inclusion in all sunshine soundtracks.
