The Royal Concept - Smile EP

My loyal readers should already know The Royal Concept: the Swedish indie pop rockers released last friday their new EP Smile, again on Republic Records - Lava Music.

The 5-track EP features the new single Fashion and was produced in Los Angeles by Tony Hoffer.
Tony is an expert producer that has a great number of high-profile names in his carnet, including The Fratellis, Depeche Mode, The Kooks, Phoenix and Foster The People, so it's not strange that Smile recalls in a couple of songs Mark Foster's band.

If you're a sucker for modern, addictive, solar pop-rock with funk nuances, stream Smile on Spotify now.
