Royal Street - Make Believe (Official Music Video)
“Royal Street’s music video for centerpiece of the album titled “Make Believe” brings a hint of colour to those who may not have a former introduction to the band, with a creative, vibrant overlay that clearly adopts the former rock influence laced into their music.” - Music Existence
Funky pop/rock band Royal Street is back with a fresh new music video for the brand new single, “Make Believe.” The single, which serves as the lead for their upcoming LP “Flavors” (out next week, 6/7/17), is a catchy, groovy track that highlights lead vocalist Viana Newton’s bluesy chops. Although simplistic, the video captures the raw essence of Royal Street; fun, energetic, and full of zest. About the song, the band states:
"Make Believe" is the closest thing to a ballad on the album, and it always evokes a strong reaction from fans at live shows. The slow burning introduction sets up the story of a yearning, a desire for a love that never was and may never will be. The song is an emotional one for the band, and one that we hope is open-ended enough people can interpret in their own way and make their own connection with, because that’s what we think making music is all about.”
Royal Street is a pop rock act from Providence, Rhode Island specializing in infectious, funky tunes that can take listeners anywhere - from the modern pop hooks of Maroon 5 or Bruno Mars to the alt-rock sounds of Taking Back Sunday or Paramore. The Royal Street sound appeals to a wide variety of listeners, combining the attitude and energy of hard rock with funky guitar lines and soulful melodies. Within only a few short months of becoming active, Royal Street was selected to play the 2015 Warped Tour (Mansfield, MA), and were also part of their first tour, the "Get Loud, Get Lost" Tour with Marina City in the summer of 2015 which covered 12 states in 12 days and used that rhythm to continue to play shows and grow their fan base, touring throughout the Northeast and Midwest.
