Brooklyn Bazaar was the site of the long anticipated self titled debut Roya album on Burger Records. Roya is the Persian word for Dream, and in this dream the fans came out in full force to celebrate the coming together of some talented great musicians that have put aside the time to create something special.
Roya’s current line up consists of singer Rahill Jamalifard who also fronts the band Habibi, drummer Lyla Vander from the talented band Bad Girlfriend, Tyler Love on guitar and keyboards, guitarists Jay Heiselmann of Grooms, and from French Miami and bassist Alix Brown of The Lids.
Roya’s symphonically motivated somber post punk fits in with it deep meaningful lyrics allowing their music to simply capture those honest feelings of your surroundings. A must have album for all collections and a must see performance.
