Royal Headache at Reverse Charges festival
Bald Face Stag Hotel
May 13, 2016
The monolithic water tower among the mainly Portuguese commercial offerings and vis-à-vis from the Masonic Temple in Petersham, one of Sydney’s inner west suburbs 6km south of its CBD, that graces the cover of Royal Headache’s High full-length is not a thing of beauty.
While useful in nature, the ole standpipe is the embodiment of a soulless brutalist structure.
The diametric opposite of Royal Headache’s passionate mélange of gritty, reverb soaked lo-fi punk and soul.
Very realist and at times bleak in nature, the soundtrack Royal Headache provides is fodder for escapism, fueled by alienation, hopes and anxiety in equal measures.
There is sincerity in their emissions and it shines through in a live environment.
Creating a calculated chaos with their intense, catchy and soulful songs and Shogun’s impassioned RnB-tinged vocal delivery, they make an instant connection with the audience.
Make sure to catch them during their upcoming European / UK and US shows before they blow up or implode, both of which are very realistic, possible future scenarios for Royal Headache.
