EXROYALE – “Without It”


The term ‘Impressive debut’ and ‘sophomore tracks’ quite often end up good musical examples of polar opposites. EXROYALE seems very much like a discovery project at the moment.  They dropped Give It Up late last year and it was superb.  It had all the hipster bases covered with its growing synths and R&B cooing.  Fast forward to today and we’re presented with track no.2, Without It.  We’re going out on a limb here & declare this The Empire Strikes Back of second offerings.  It’s simply lovely; from the way the drums usher in a ‘ready to do business’ manner to the radio ready oo’s & ah’s.  It’s grander without losing the quirks or its charms, and an example of how to do track no.2’s. It’s likely to be a track that’ll burn nicely into summer.  Two thumbs up here, along with two legs dancing.

Bonus listen: Give It Up
