Royal Teeth performance via Audiotree


Earlier New Orleans band Royal Teeth showed us a glimpse into why they’re so good. They did a live streaming in-studio performance at Audiotree. And what a performance it was. The interviewer (who, because of my own hearing problems, could not understand his name) was excellent, very radioy, but still asked some funny and pertinent questions. The prize here, though, was the music. That’s why people are watching. They weren’t disappointed.

Royal Teeth have been on my radar for a little over a year now and now I’m considering this their breakout year. They have an arena type sound with perfect harmonies and brilliant tonality. The lyrics are excellent and the camaraderie between the band mates is seemingly unmatched. These people seem to have a genuine affection for one another. The performance, marred only by average video quality from two in-studio cameraz (most likely webcams), was phenomenal. Having formerly worked at a radio station I know that many bands do not bring their A-game to these type of performances.

Royal Teeth brought more than their A-game; they brought their A+ game. It’s difficult to be this great this often, but every single time I have heard Royal Teeth they are on point. They leave it all the stage, every time, no matter how big that stage is. What a performance, minor as it may be. Also, aside from my pretentious video views. Audiotree has a great thing going there in Chicago. The sound was epic and the energy level was off the charts. If you get a chance, and by if I mean get a fucking chance, check out Royal Teeth.
