Brooklyn trio The Royal They kicked off 2018 strong with the release of their sophomore album ‘Foreign Being’ on King Pizza Records! Level 3 of My Little Underground welcomes the talkative three-o to talk about our rough understanding of the term “post-punk”, the status of rock music in popular culture, how the differences in their personalities make for better collaborations, me trying to understand some of their sharp lyrics, getting sucked into the constant social media news cycle, the current usefulness of cassettes and other physical music and more! Listen here.
