Today’s song is “Equestrian” by U.S. Royalty. This is the first single off the quartet’s debut album, album MIRRORS set a to release on January 25th, 2011. Their music has been given early comparison to the likes of Local Natives, The Black Keyes, Band of Horses and Early Kings of Leon. They have made appearances at SXSW, NXNE, Art Basel, and CMJ and have already received love from Esquire, SPIN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and more! “With this record we wanted to present a body of work, a complete thought,” says singer John Thornley. To achieve this, the band wrote and rewrote songs for a year, demoing and dissecting while on the road and at home. John continues, “Because we traveled for about a year and a half before we recorded the album, there is definitely a travel vibe to the record.”
