Royal Chant

Royal Chant

Royal Chant is a garage band from the wilds of NSW, Australia who now call Sydney home. Fast & fuzzed, slanted & slurred, they play their poetic concoctions with reckless abandon and an ear for melody & discontent. Keeping their heads down and the distortion up, they carve their own strange path just out of the spotlight but never far from it. Despite racking up supports and radio play according to the whims of the critical cognoscenti, their only real concern is writing, playing, & recording while criss-crossing the motherland to earn their fans one shambolic show at a time.

    Yada Yada Yada

    It's the taste of catastrophe, in the details and fine print.

    I Can't Make It On My Own
    By Royal Chant
    Overslept & underfed & betting on a horse... a bit of fuzzy gutter romanticism to shake you awake.

    The Familiar Taste Of Familiar Mistakes
    By Royal Chant
    From THE WAR CRY OF FAILURE LP comes another blast of fuzz pop from the wilds of Australia. Short & sweet, rough around the edges, jaded is all the right places.

    I Pretend You Believe
    By Royal Chant
    A raw slice of fuzz pop fury, where heart meets gutter and a rose between your teeth.

    Dick Move
    By Royal Chant
    A fuzzy, bruised piece of garage pop melancholy set against the jaded backdrop of Sydney's Oxford St.

    A garage band from the wilds of NSW suffering from an unlikely collision of fuzz pedals, pop, & poetry.

    Fiction, frustration, & desperation in a furious howl with a garage band wailing away.

    Shake, Shake
    By Royal Chant
    Just do what the song says and no one gets hurt. A rambling romp through the unconscious blur.

    New Nowhere
    By Royal Chant
    "New Nowhere" is the first single from Royal Chant's upcoming Small Town Bruises EP. There's an acoustic guitar on there. Huh. That's a first. Royal Chant is a trio from the sleepy coastal town of Port Macquarie, about 400kms North of Sydney, making fast & fuzzy songs from the edge of modern existence.

    Hey Hey
    By Royal Chant
    Track one from the debut Royal Chant LP, "Raise Your Glass & Collapse". A mixed up pop song of sorts, a bit backwards and railing against it all, reaching out in the dark and hanging on by a thread.

    [other]
    By Royal Chant
    "It's broken but it works..." A typical fuzzed out folk song from Royal Chant, one of Australia's hardest working independent outfits, content to grind and make joyful noise in their empty church of nowhere. [other] was the second single from their debut "Raise Your Glass & Collapse" LP. Play it loud, tell a friend, rinse, repeat.

    If there is such a thing as garage country grunge, then this might be it.

    Little Communist
    By Royal Chant
    "Little Communist" is from Royal Chant's "Starts & Stutters" EP. Fuzzed out rambling poetics about love & chaos....all the usual you'd expect from the eternally shrugging, ever struggling Australian trio.
