RØYLS take on the A-Z challenge

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the various artists around the world! Today it is the turn of RØYLS to take us behind the scenes by tackling the challenge!

A song what made you want to make music?

Sean: I used to listen to ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’  by Scissor Sisters all the time as a kid and that was the first time I wished I wrote a song that wasn’t mine.

Best rider you’ve had?

Drew: In Europe they do great sandwich selections with various cheeses and meats and it’s always so good.

Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?

Liam: Definitely playing Reading and Leeds festival this year. Seeing all those people jumping and having a good time was surreal for us.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Sean: I’m so over overthinking I’m just human

Easiest song you wrote?

Drew: Wrote a song in 5 minutes and then it ended up becoming a single.

Favourite song in your set?

Liam: Choose To Believe. Feels so good to play.

Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?

Sean: Julia Michaels

Hardest thing about being a band?

Drew: Being away from friends and family

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Liam: Sean buys a new pair of underwear once a month

Jokes you have in the band?

Sean: We have a few inside ones that unfortunately we can’t disclose haha

Key to writing a song?

Drew: Don’t force it, it should come naturally and you should be hyped about what you write. Don’t try to write “ a hit” just write something you actually enjoy.

Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?

Liam: Drew and I just flew from the west coast to London to play our headline show! So about 5000 miles!

Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?

Sean: Easily John Feldmann. He’s been such a great mentor and friend to me the past year.

New band you’d recommend?

Drew: The Driver Era 

Opening for this band would be ideal?

Liam: Personally I think opening for LANY would be sooo sick.

Place you’d most like to tour?

Sean: Tokyo!

Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?

Drew: Don’t search for happiness, create your own

Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?

Liam: Our EP is called I Think Too Much. We picked that name because a lot of the songs we wanted on it involve overthinking and letting your mind get the best of you.

See us live at?

Sean: I’m literally typing this after playing Reading festival today! We’re about to play Leeds fest and we’re doing a UK run with Stand Atlantic!

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

Drew: I personally love what is out now.

Unusual merchandise?

Liam: Currently I don’t think any of our merch is unusual, however I would like to add in a RØYLS neck pillow line.

Variations you’d like to do on any of your songs?

Sean: I’d love to make an acoustic version of Rule the Night

What do your fans mean to you?

Drew: Literally everything. We wouldn’t be anything without them. We owe everything to them.

X-rays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?

Liam: Honestly I think we’ve been pretty safe as a band so far!! However Sean did just walk into a glass door last night.

You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?

Sean: Probably mine

Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?

Drew: Monkeys
