Austin-hailing talent Kenton Mackay shares energetic, hard-hitting garage alt-rock single “Royalty Free,” taken from his upcoming debut EP of the same name. Brimming with weighty grunge guitars that cushion punchy yet soaring vocals, the intoxicating track draws inspiration from Radiohead's “Bodysnatchers,” to weave a nostalgic 80s tonality.
Led by booming baritone vocals, the anthemic production showcases gritty rock sensibilities with touches of pop as he ruminates on seeking attention as a performer. Rooted in his trademark style that oscillates between frantic energy and contemplative introspection, Mackay captivates us on each note.
Establishing himself as an act to watch in Austin’s vibrant music scene, “'Royalty Free,” gives us a taste of what’s in store from the genre-bending promising talent.
