Royal Teeth Signs with Elektra Records

Royal Teeth has signed with a major label, Elektra Records, which is owned by Warner Music Group.The decision to sign with a major label is big for any band. It signals a big vote of confidence in their commercial talent. Royal Teeth is an American indie group from Lafayette, New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. They formed in 2010. Band-mates include sing/guitarist Gary Larsen, singer Nora Patterson, guitarist Thomas Onebane, bassist Josh Wells and drummer Josh Hefner.

In a statement released by the band, “We’re very excited to announce our signing to Elektra Records! We have been pouring our hearts into writing new music. We are growing and changing and lovin the process.” This up-and-coming indie band released their tour dates for the latter part of the year and make a pivotal stop at the Jazz & Heritage Festival this Friday April 24.

Their songs sound similar to indie pop music that has been licensed for hip Heineken and Apple commercials. Catchy, poppy and ultimately fun music to hear. They have whistles, percussion, sticks and shakers and their true strength is their ability to harmonize their vocals. Royal Teeth is a blithe cross between Passion Pit and MIKA. The group released their EP Act Naturally in 2012. Visit the band’s official website here. Watch their single “Wild” below:
