FLY MOON ROYALTY Comes To Chicago’s Elbo Room Oct. 2
Dichotomy in a partnership is always tricky, but not for Seattle’s Fly Moon Royalty. Bleeding with all the heart and soul of blues and r&b, combined with the contemporary aesthetics of modern day electronica and hip hop, the collaboration of the Seattle-based duo is a perfectly fitting contradiction. Comprised of soulful vocalist, Adra Boo and DJ/Producer/Emcee Action J, the two-piece released their EP, Unfinished Business, earlier this year. Idling comfortably between the party ready glam of The Gossip, with the funk aesthetics of Gnarls Barkley, the EP was a progressive step forward for the band, following the release of 2012’s Dimensions EP and their stunning, self- titled debut LP in 2011.
Fly Moon Royalty has cemented themselves as certified up and comers within the local Seattle music scene, with Seattle Magazine naming the enigmatic duo as one of the city’s Best New Bands, while City Arts voted them as best the city’s Best Local Band in 2012, following an Honorable Mention in the same category a year earlier. With a No. 5 debut on KEXP’s r&b charts, the band have since gone onto support the likes of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Macklemore, Slum Village, Robert Glasper, Nneka and Allen Stone.
