While commercial rap music may leave much to be desired, fortunately there’s still artists paving new directions creatively while remaining true to their hip hop roots. Melbourne, Australia-based Royalty Noise embodies that drive in all the best and most interesting ways. Fronted by two very skilled MCs and rounded with a full backing band that includes a live drummer and keyboard player and Bass Royalty Noise have earned a reputation as not only one of Melbourne’s most interesting music projects, but also as a rising Hip Hop sensation. Recently, the artists announced a March 12th. 2016 release date for their new EP “Common Ground”, with anticipation building up to the release high.
Royalty Noise are well known for a mix of introspective, intelligent and aggressive lyrics, much of which is intended to help wake their listeners out of a slumber and help free them from “the Matrix” once and for all. This respect for free thinking and rebellious non-conformist streak can be felt throughout “Common Ground”, a clear break from commercial hip hop and a return to the art form’s smarter and more credible roots.
