Hear hints of The Buzzcocks and The Feelies in Royal Shoals new single “Com Et Dius?”
With driving surf-rock influences, jangly guitars ala The Feelies and a propulsive rhythm section, the new song from Philly’s Royal Shoals picks up where the band’s last EP, Surrender + 3 left off. “Com Et Dius?” comes from their forthcoming EP, Royal Shoals Hotel; its title is Catalan for “what’s your name,” and has a joyful urgency to it. As they’d done in the past, the band recorded the song with Jeff Ziegler at Uniform Recording. Deserving of repeated plays, the song is drenched in guitar greatness and takes on the youthful abandonment of a song like “Ever Fallen In Love” by The Buzzcocks.
