Rue Royale is another band that comes my way via the inimitable Brendan Losch, who never fails to impress with his musical selection (check his blog, Count Me Out). The Royale husband and wife duo are friends with Losch from their Chicago days, but have since moved to the UK, which is noticeable in their sound. Through the alluring, airy vocals shines a slight twinge of Brit-pop, with acoustic guitar at the base of the sound.
Rue Royale recently released a new album, Guide To An Escape, which can be ordered from their website. Below is the a-side track (which is also on the full length) off their recent 7”. You can find it via Need No Water Records.
