New: Mt. Royal - "Missing Reward"

Mt Royal band

Here's a track from a relatively unknown band that's going to be kind of hard to ignore. At times stirring in a Shakespeere tragedy sort of way and at other times divinely calming, "Missing Reward" is the work of some obviously proficient musicians channeling some post-Grace Jeff Buckley and Beach House vibes. The Baltimore act, now being called Mt. Royal, was originally a collaboration between the members of Big in Japan and Katrina Ford, but the group recently decided to go ahead and turn the project into a legit band. We're glad they did. Hopefully more music to come our way soon.
