Fashion art-rock band Palaye Royale hail from Canada. The proverbial cradle of the brothers Kropp – operating under the names Remington Leith (vocals), Sebastian Danzig (guitar/keyboards) and Emerson Barrett (drums/piano) – was in Toronto, but they have since based themselves in US gambling paradise Las Vegas. A case of Casino Royale, you could say. Their catchy, gravelly garage/guitar rock with generous helpings of glam and Britpop – they cite the likes of Bowie, the Stones, the Faces and My Chemical Romance as major influences – sounds as colourful and flamboyant as they look.
