New song: U.S. Royalty: Equestrian

Before you get too far into this post, let’s call a spade a spade here: Equestrian, the newest song from U.S. Royalty, sounds like Local Natives. A lot.

But, when you’re being compared to such a good band, and you still manage to warrant a glowing blog post, then who’s to complain? Not I. That said, Equestrian, with its layered-harmony chorus about mountains might just be the catchiest slice of folky-pop (or poppy-folk?) you’ll hear all day. Take that Local Native comparison, stir it up with some Fleet Foxes and a particularly spidery guitar solo, and you’ve got Equestrian, from the band’s upcoming debut Mirrors. A perfect “walking outside on a crisp fall day while colorful leaves float around” song. Or better yet, just go camping and blast this jam. Either way, well worth your 3 minutes.
