Royworld out of this world

ECCENTRIC indie poppers Royworld, who take their name from a Welsh bowling alley, are ready to strike with their debut album Man In The Machine.
For this Buggles-esque release of 80s inspired melodrama is top of the pomps - epic, dynamic and full of more hooks than the classified section of the Angling Times.
Singles like Elasticity and Dust are both radio-friendly and challengingly complex, and completely different from their contemporaries.
Even the band's structure is a little off-the-wall, with their poignant songs co-written by singer Rod Futrille and his brother Crispin, who is not even in the band.
Ultimately these songs are big compositions, and it would be an injustice if by the end of the year, Royworld are not playing the arenas they would be so at home in.
In the meantime, you can catch them near Loughborough in Nottingham's Rock City on June 3, and Leicester's Summer Sundae festival on August 8.
