LA-based duo Royal Tongues have shared “Oblivion,” the first single to be taken from their upcoming summer EP.
Following the release of their debut Patterns and Shapes EP last year the band have been busy touring alongside the likes of Young the Giant, Bleachers, Bear Hands and Panama Wedding.
With the days getting brighter and longer, “Oblivion” drops just in time to provide an over-saturated soundscape of shimmering indie-pop to soundtrack the start of summer. With its infectious, upbeat blend of indie-pop and electronica, this latest cut is likely to induce a smile at the very least from the listener if not a full-blown bout of hysteria. Royal Tongues’ heady sound can best draw parallels to the likes of Passion Pit or Walk The Moon, both of which are known for their dancing rhythms and energetic vocals.
The momentous feel of the track compliments its subject matter with the band explaining: “”Oblivion” is about our journey and working our hardest; letting nothing get in the way of what we want to do. This song is personal for both of us as it’s also about our big move from Buffalo to Los Angeles and how big of a risk that was for us.”
“Oblivion” is available to download from tomorrow with Royal Tongues’ next EP scheduled for release later in summer.
