Palaye Royale

Boom Boom Room (Side B)

Classic Rock - - Joe Bonamassa -

Palaye Royale, made up of three broth­ers, de­scribe their mu­sic as “fash­ion-art rock”. Which sug­gests they’ve got a tal­ent for spin­ning mean­ing­less words into bull­shit phrases, if noth­ing else. Thank­fully their sec­ond al­bum is bet­ter than that sug­gests.

The fol­low-up to Boom Boom Room (Side A) finds them kit­ting out mid-00s emo rock in vin­tage suits and eye­liner. Teenage Doors Of Heart­break comes on like My Chem­i­cal Ro­mance with a B-movie fix­a­tion, while the grad­u­ally ac­cel­er­at­ing You’ll Be Fine sees singer Rem­ing­ton

Leigh plas­ter­ing a fair fac­sim­i­lie of a punk snarl across his sunken cheek­bones.

En­ter­tain­ing enough, if hardly the ge­n­e­sis of the new move­ment they’re so des­per­ate to start.

Glam-emo pea­cocks em­brace the drama on al­bum two.
