If you are a Local Natives fan, you must give U.S. Royalty a listen. The band combines the same kind of southern, sweet tea harmonies with gobs of beautiful nature imagery a la Fleet Foxes. In fact, the vocals on the intro of “Equestrian” quite remind me of a hooting owl. And that’s a good thing.
The D.C. boys are getting ready to blow up somethin’ big. I’m placing my bet now.
The debut album, Mirrors, is set for an early 2011 release.
