The Bombay Royale are creators of a fresh new musical genre originally inspired by the soundtracks of vintage Bollywood and drawing on a wide range of influences – from 60s rock and 70s funk and disco to the classical and folk music of India. They have taken their unique sound to festival and club audiences all over the world.
Their debut album You Me Bullets Love went to #1 on the iTunes World Music charts and their second album The Island of Dr Electrico was licensed in films, video games and TV shows.
In 2017 the band unleashed its trademark sound yet again with their new album Run Kitty Run.
Cult band The Bombay Royale are set for a triumphant return with their third studio masterpiece ‘Run Kitty Run’. A Retro Bollywood fuelled rampage through Psyche-Surf, 80’s Electro-Pop and Desert Rock, ‘Run Kitty Run’ is, like its predecessors, conceived as the soundtrack to a lost film.
The music conjures into life a devastated futuristic landscape peopled by robotic horsemen, killer satellites and grinning sadhus. Overlaid with vocals in Hindi, Bengali and English, the resulting soundtrack is one of love and betrayal, hopeless escapes and unlikely salvation.
