March 1, 2019

Ravager by Them Bloody Royals. Out on March 15. Cover Art by Alexis Sarmiento.

Though the first precise drum beats suggest this could be another Song 2 by Blur, a discordant jangling guitar bites through announcing 80’s New Wave clarity along with articulate vocals uncannily similar to The Cure’s Robert Smith. The tale told by “Ravager” by Them Bloody Royals jumps right into the midst of action, one of escape from attack. With the chorus, this story-song breaks into messy 90’s grunge, its danceable angst defining a new generation that won’t sit still and let the world pass by.

Them Bloody Royals is the reincarnation of the Filipino indie pop/alternative rock outfit The Royal (active from 2011-2018) and is fronted by Sib Sibulo, a former TV Host and MTV Philippines VJ (2007-2010) while the rest of the members hail from different groups such as The Charmes, Plane Divides The Sky, The Out Of Body Special, and Boy Elroy. Their music is reminiscent of British bands of the past and the present ranging from jangle-pop to 80’s inspired synth-pop and 90s Britpop.

To celebrate the release of their debut single, a public launch gig is scheduled on March 14, 2019 at Route 196 together with The Camerawalls, Bird, and July XIV.

Listen to a 30 second preview of “Ravager”
