Roya - Roya Cassette
Roya is a six piece band from Brooklyn with a strong pedigree: singer Rahill Jamilifard fronts Habibi, drummer Hamish Kilgour is a member of legendary band The Clean, Jay Heiselmann is from the Pitchfork-acclaimed Grooms, and bassist Alix Brown is previously of The Lids, Jay Reatard and Golden Triangle.
Their sound is a melodically driven somber post punk, with an earnest emphasis on lyrics. The band formed in the summer of 2015 and has since been compiling an impressive string of shows, opening for Fat White Family, Black Lips, Curtis Harding, King Tuff, Arto Lindsay, Ex Hex, Dilly Dally, Entrance, to name a few.
