Song of the Day: The Royal Concept – Gimme Twice

Swedish band The Royal Concept have been doing their homework. Their recently released EP The Royal Concept EP is a hodgepodge of influence from bands that have been popular in the past decade. Spread out over five tracks, there are elements of acts such as The Strokes, Foals and Phoenix among others. The lead single, “Gimme Twice,” is particularly guilty of sounding Phoenix-esque, so much so that my friends asked me if this was the new Phoenix record when I played them the album. Is that bad? I don’t know.

All I know is that the Royal Concept have created a fun, catchy track that given the right traction, will be featured on the dance floor at an indie hipster party near you sometime this summer.
