New to COM is New York City-based bank Graffiti Royale with their second single, entitled Raised. Upon listening to the track, you’ll be able to tell it’s a story about growing up in Manhattan, told by the group’s emcee, Quez Dreamer. Backed by sunny samples, soulful guitars and explosive drums, this song is the perfect soundtrack for the end of summer.
The genre-blending soundscape created by Graffiti Royale is most likely due to their cross-country roots, with members hailing from California, Philadelphia and New York. Be sure to stay tuned for more from the band, including an EP which is set to release later this year!
