The fact that the music of Sydney's Royal Headache generates instant comparisons to past greats like The Nerves or The Jam is in no way a knock on the band. Rather, it's a compliment of the highest order. Listen to this new jam, "Another World," and how its gravely, high-energy mix cannot hide the quartet's pop acumen. It's perfect pop, played with vigor, sung with soul, as if Royal Headache first ones to stumble upon the formula.
It's been far too long since we last heard from Sydney garage rockers, Royal Headache. Their debut album came out in 2011 in Australia, a year later hear in the States, and between then and now their recorded output consisted of a 7" for Matador Records' singles club.
