The Royal Commoners - Grace
It is a treat these days to come across a truly riveting debut offering from local talent. The latest such indulgence comes in the form of Royal Commoners’ “Grace”. The edgy Cape Town based folk-rockers are a charming and wholly welcome addition to the local scene with a sound just quirky enough to set them apart from the recent influx of similar musical outfits. With over a year of collective live performance under their belt, the band finally saw fit to release this studio recorded tidbit for our enjoyment.
Fast becoming a Cape Town favourite, The Royal Commoners has become known for their upbeat and edgy folk-rock music. Their music -modern and rich -
blends a jumble of folksy acoustic guitar, heavy bass and three-part harmonies to bring you a unique and eclectic sound. Powered by some incredible vocals, The Royal Commoners’ catchy melodies and lyrics will leave you clapping and foot- stomping throughout their performance.
