Florida psych-rockers, FayRoy, have premiered “Life And Death”, the second single from their debut studio LP Heaven At Twenty Seven due out next month. Our first look came via a video for the track, which premiered with The Music Ninja this morning. The official visual for “Life And Death” is as slick and psychedelically-stimulating as the track itself; a perfect representation of the combination of meticulous arrangements and thoughtful production that has allowed the band to be accessible while still pushing the envelope creatively. You can give “Life And Death” a spin on the band’s YouTube.
There is a really cool revival of the classic rock sound that a lot of us remember our parent’s blasting when we were kids going on in South Florida right now and FayRoy are right at the heart of it. “Life And Death” is an ethereal musical trip down memory lane with smooth guitar leads and synth lines that are as bright as the moon on a clear Florida night. Lead singer Zack Hoag’s vocals flit and flutter over top of the track in a way that is still assertive; masterfully blending into the soundscape rather than fighting it.
FayRoy is comprised of Indian Rocks Beach Florida locals Zachary Hoag and Kyle Fournier as well as close friends Greyson Charnock (Someday River) and Dallas Eubanks (The Jackettes). The band’s psychedelic garage rock influences are fused together with the atmosphere of the New England occult and 1960’s surf culture. After spending the past 3 years in San Francisco’s bay area, Kyle and Zack are preparing to release their first studio LP “Heaven at Twenty Seven” out of Blacktoe Studio in St Petersburg Florida.
