ROY ROY — nu jazz / experimental music duo from Leeds, UK


ROY ROY are comprised of two best mates (Max Lambert and Archie Carron) who combine experimental production techniques, spoken word and dark humour to create an enticing and strikingly original cocktail of Punk, Jazz and Hip-Hop.

The project was initially an answer to the boredom of lockdown, but after a few of months of development it has evolved into something that both felt needed to be pursued. The musical and lyrical content of their tracks surf between the literal and surreal, giving the duo autonomy over the true meaning of the song in question, something they both find empowering and key to their songwriting process. Influences are drawn from an understandably eclectic and far reaching pool of artists and genres, both old and new. From Hak Baker and Ian Dury to Tim Key and Kate Nash. From The Clash and Viagra Boys to Earl Sweatshirt and Nickelus F.
