It’s a tale as old as popular music itself; hearing a song live changes your entire perception of it. There’s some inexplicable magic at work, and suddenly it’s like hearing it again for the first time. Sometimes it can even happen when you’re not even there, simply by watching a live recording you can open your mind to new possibilities. Royal Street’s new live rendition of ‘Say Hello’, from their debut album Flavors, does just that. With plenty of pop appeal, some refined Americana vibes, and their trademark bass tones, this dark horse of a track has really grown on me. Showing a different side to the band, this charming performance really brings out the best of Royal Street, and is sure to delight their fans as well as lure in plenty of new faces.
