Royalty "Heart Strings"
London duo Royalty is getting set to release a new EP, the five-track Purple Nights. The EP, which includes a remix from Jimmy Edgar, drops November 21 on vinyl, with a digital release a week later, but the pair has let slip "Heart Strings" in the meantime. Although the boy-girl duo hails from London and rubs elbows with the local house/garage/post-everything crowd, its music takes more cues from '80s electro-funk than the so-called hardcore continuum. With its slappy basslines, vintage synths, and generally funky vibe, "Heart Strings" is a perfect example of what Royalty has on offer. Check the Purple Nights EP artwork and tracklist, along with an audio preview, after the jump.
