Band / Reviews


  • Live Show Review
    “It is what modern indie rock should sound like- meaningful, purposeful, sincere, beautiful and enchanting.”
    2 May 2009 Check Out Gigs (Muhammad Odeh)
  • Live Show Review
    “their vivacious performance and excellent musicianship should finally see them get the success they richly deserve”
    14 December 2008 A Heart Can Stop A Bullet (Citizen Meh)
  • Live Show Review
    “They already have some future classics in their magnificent repertoire. Songs like ‘Voice Beneath the Rubble’ and ‘A Lightbulb Turning Off’ put almost anything on MTV to shame.”
    6 December 2008 Check Out Gigs (Muhammad Odeh)
  • Live Show Review
    “...the stylish Anglo-American sextet effortlessly won over a sceptical audience with their intriguing mix of Pulp-esque synth pop with AF orchestration.”
    16 November 2008 A Heart Can Stop A Bullet (Citizen Meh)
  • Interview
    It’s good that bands like yourselves are going against the grain and doing something a bit more grandiose than your average rent-a-chord guitar band.
    June 2008 Backlash (Reef Younis)
  • "Falling" Single Review
    “you can’t help but smiling at it when you listen to it.”
    23 May 2008 The Beat Surrender
  • "Falling" Single Review
    “It is a long time since the very first release from a band has been such an attention-grabbing statement of intent. If The Outside Royalty can maintain such impeccably high standards from here onwards, they will not remain outsiders for long.”
    20 May 2008 Room Thirteen
  • "Falling" Single Review
    “Described as a six-piece indie electro chamber rock band, The Outside Royalty certainly know how to build intrigue.”
    12 May 2008 Click Music (Samuel Duke)
  • Interview
    “Much compared to Arcade Fire, U.S. formed but London based six-piece rockestra The Outside Royalty have had a whirlwind 12 months. Touring and playing with all from Young Knives to Babyshambles and off the back of a highly successful Road to V campaign in 2007, they’ve just released their debut single proper ‘Falling’ and the only way from here is definitely up!”
    May 2008 Noize Makes Enemies (Martin Kendrick)
  • Live Show Review
    “The most engaging unsigned band I have ever witnessed”
    May 2007 Virgin Road to V, Official Review (Tom Servo)
