Pop-Rock outfit ROYAL ESTATE returns with another smashing single ‘ANOTHER’!
After the release of their first single, ‘PACING’ in the first half of 2018, the Singaporean band had been spending the last few months working to finish up their debut EP, have been playing multiple shows, while simultaneously experimenting with their sonic diversity and flexibility in their brand of the Pop genre.
‘ANOTHER’ features the flip side of the band’s sound, stripping away the dance grooves of their previous single to reveal a more introspective and intimate sonic experience. It's ethereal, easy to listen to, and great to put on if you want to let your hair down in the privacy of your bedoroom. The ballad features new lead vocalist, Russell’s voice at the forefront, accompanied by layers of ambient synths reminiscent of bands such as CHVRCHES, The Temper Trap, and The XX.
With two members working in the film industry (Seran at HBO and Russell freelancing at Telescope Productions) the band, with the help of some friends, also filmed a self-produced and self-directed music video. The MV itself has beautiful cinematography that shows a young couple living their lives together in Singapore. The concept itself has a nice modern feel - Russell features as the boy reflecting the couple's best memories, while the girl "glitches" throughout the video, before ultimately being out of Russell's life.
