They’re fearless, too, willing to scorch a sweetly harmonic throwback pop song with a monster guitar solo. Or graffiti a plaintive ballad with elegiac words about a marginalized war vet – while adding another scorching guitar solo.
All that and more features on the band’s dazzling 2016 sophomore long-player Colours of the Sun, which builds on the combined (but wholly distinct) singing/songwriting and guitar playing of Terry O'Brien and Chris Kerwin.
Alongside band-mates bassist/vocalist Bram Al-Najjar and drummer Mike Giamberardino, the fast-rising Tribe Royal handily proves that exhilarating diversity does still exist in contemporary rock. You just need to know where to look.
