Roy de Roy

Different, multicultural and loud!

Vienna is the musical capitol of Eastern Europe and therefore this band benefits from an enormous musical richness: They recycle Polka and Punk,
mix Gypsy with Ska and throw in a language spoken by only 2 million people in the world: Slovenian.
The ambassadors of Polka-Punk with Slovenian, Portuguese and unpronounceable roots find themselves in a city that provides input for their lyrics on a daily basis: Hence they sing about a paranoid society, the stupidity of nationalism, vain Diasporas or the historiography of the
Balkans. Although you most likely won’t understand their lyrics, you can
still feel that the songs are coming either from the heart or from the fist. The band’s new Album “Civil Riots” is a black altercation with social consciousness and collective apathy. Always with a winking eye, with the stubborn soul of the Balkans and full of danceable tragedies, “Roy de Roy” serves a bright mixture of melancholic Pirate-Waltz and high-speed Polka-Punk! In the last years “Roy de Roy” has taken root on Europe’s stages from London to Paris, from Berlin to Sarajevo and has left the typical results of PolkaPunk: Ears are still ringing, dancehalls are still burning and the walls are still shaking.
