Royce Wood Junior has played in Jamie Woon’s band, contributed to Kwabs’ album, and done a few sick remixes, but now he’s focusing on his own work. His 12-track LP The Ashen Tang is scheduled for a May 11 release via 37 Adventures, and “Midnight” is the first single. It’s a lively blend of soul and pop with a funky kick to it and a message we can all relate to. Royce explains, “If you fucked up today, midnight will be along soon. Try again tomorrow.”
There are a lot of new acts blending a retro spirit with a modern twist, but few sound as natural as Royce Wood Junior. Check out the “Midnight” video above, and add The Ashen Tang to your list of albums to look forward to this year. -- P&P
