Fly Moon Royalty has a big year ahead of them in 2012. After getting off the ground last year with their strong “Lemonade” single, they are currently prepping new material and have played much of it at shows around the city. On Saturday, they played at Sea-Tac Airport as a part of the Sea-Tac Aiport Music Initiative that began last week. They have two upcoming dates, including the Dancing on the Valentine show at Crocodile on February 10th and the Little Big Show with Pickwick on February 16th at Neptune.
Fly Moon Royalty is a two man act featuring a minimalist neo-soul sound. The vocals are handled by Adra Boo and the production tracks and keys are tackled by Action Jackson. The band’s sound is equal parts accessible and provocative. Boo’s vocals are powerful and faultless, but when they are added to the simple drum patterns and muted synth textures at Jackson’s hand, Fly Moon Royalty possesses a sound and a likeness unto its own. With their next string of shows and hopefully a full length release, Fly Moon Royalty should come alive in the Seattle music scene in 2012.
