AUGUST ROYALS RELEASES NEW SINGLE ANGEL ARMS
TORONTO, ON – May 5, 2023 – Today, rising artist, August Royals, returns with the release of his latest single, Angel Arms, out now via RCA Records. Listen here and watch the visualizer here.
His first song of 2023, Angel Arms, follows last year’s release of his debut project, Inhaler, a nine-track EP that served as a multi-genre reflection of his own experiences and struggles. Driven by the strums of an acoustic guitar before bursting to life with a flurry of drums and percussion, Angel Arms is an emotional indie-pop track that sees August trying to connect with a love interest.
Says August of the song, “if I had to write a song that captured falling in love, this is what it would sound like.”
Garnering praise from V Magazine, Rollacoaster, Lyrical Lemonade, and more, August Royals has quickly started making a name for himself in just a few short months, establishing himself as an artist to watch. Selected as part of Pigeons & Planes’ highly coveted Best New Artists, he was heralded as “the rare kind of talent who’s positioned to strike the difficult balance between artistry and accessibility.” The Georgia-born and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter first caught listeners’ attention in 2019 when he posted a clip of his song, Restless, and went viral on Instagram with hundreds of thousands of views.
After a chance meeting with Kevin Abstract at a show in Los Angeles, the two became fast friends and collaborators. Championed by Abstract, August signed with RCA Records and released his debut single Blue Football to praise and critical acclaim. Clash called the release “exhilarating,” praising it as a “carefully finessed song, one that balances the micro with the macro in its search for meaning.” Following suit with Crash less than a month later, the single was featured as one of Billboard’s 10 Cool New Pop Songs.
