The month of October has proven to be a busy month for new music releases. With many of my personal favorite bands putting out new tunes, I’ve been more excited about the coming of fall than usual. Among the many artists that have recently released new projects is the Nashville-based alternative folk rock band Prince of Spain, formerly known as The Scene Aesthetic. His Majesty, the first of hopefully many projects to come from Prince of Spain, is a full length album that has the familiar feel of groups like Ivan & Alyosha or Fleet Foxes in its harmonic melody and lighthearted sound yet is still quite unique to the music scene.
Frontman Andrew De Torres shared, “For the last 2 years we’ve been working on a collection of songs and ultimately felt like they deserved to be given a new name. Many have asked where we’ve gone. But we’ve been right here the whole time. We proudly present to you His Majesty, Prince of Spain.”
I found this album to be youthful and worldly at the same time with a natural and refreshing vibe. Having listened to His Majesty in its entirety, I can easily say that this album is a perfect addition to an already amazing month of new music. Do yourself a favor and drop a couple of bucks on His Majesty. By doing this, not only are you supporting a wickedly talented local band, but you’re scoring some pretty awesome tracks to help transition your playlists into the fall season.
