America quickly became like a second home for Sweden’s The Royal Concept. In fact, their stateside arrival has been quite a long time in the making for vocalist David Larson. “When I was a kid, I used to say, ‘The first time I go to America will be because of music!’,” he smiles. “Lo and behold, that’s exactly how and why it happened.”
In 2012, that anxiously - awaited dream came true shortly after the quartet - Larson, Filip Bekic [guitar], Magnus Robert [bass], and Frans Povel [drums] - topped Hype Machine with not one but two songs, “D-D-Dance” and “Gimme Twice. A myriad of labels clamored to sign them over the course of the next month, but LAVA proved the perfect fit. The band proceeded to hit U.S. soil for the first time, playing alongside everybody from Imagine Dragons and Alex Clare to Atlas Genius, further generating buzz and developing a fervent following.
When they returned to Sweden in early 2013, they garnered all sorts of new inspirations and experiences to cull from as they worked on what would eventually become their 2013 offering the Royal EP [LAVA/Republic Records]. By happenstance, the track “World On Fire” leaked and quickly became a fan favorite in January. Merging sizzling synths, dynamic guitars, and a devilishly danceable hook, the song further fueled their own fire.
