#4 – Royal Teeth – Act Naturally
The Royal Teeth out of New Orleans were a huge surprise to me. A little poppy, a little electronic and a lot of awesome. I loved this EP when many people hadn’t heard of this quirky little act. With two singers that are equally talented and music that feels like it’s both from the future and the past I have big hopes for this band in 2013. This EP blew me away, especially the song “Heartbeats” which made me realize that Nora Patterson is a star and this band could easily, dare I say it, be the next Arcade Fire like surprise. The song is big and powerful and really showcases the talented Patterson’s gigantic vocal prowess. Get acquainted fast!
They will be in San Francisco at the Rickshaw Stop January 2nd. If you don’t live in SF then you can check their tour dates out here.
