With their Lichtenstein-influenced cover and the light-hearted swinging of their drums, Regal Degal is a referential band for the modern times. There is only one tag on their SoundCloud and it is simply “crypto gypto” and while we see a little bit pop juiciness and a swelling through the center of this acoustic-driven track, we also find it reflects in on itself in a shoegazey, flirtatious, haunty way. Dark and light simultaneously pervade it, but don't be surprised if your feet are tapping harder than your tears fall. It's gorgeous and oiled up with reverb.
Regal Degal have a new EP coming through Terrible Records on July 30. You can preorder that guy here, especially if “crypto gypto” is your scene. Tour dates in strange places listed below.
