The Royal Foundry’s ‘Don’t Know’ is some eclectic, upbeat pop rock out of Canada. The band describes this song as, “about the frustrations we all experience when trying to connect with someone so strong-willed they refuse to learn and empathize with the world around them.” They say they have “embarked on a new sound for this single, complete with infectious horns and dirty guitars. It’s the next evolution of The Royal Foundry.” This is a really dynamic, well-crafted track – and on top of that it has an infectious pop sensibility. It seems like the kind of song you would hear playing during a lull in the action of a sporting event – kind of like The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’ or Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’. What this husband-and-wife duo has managed to do is fuse the intense, almost industrial sensibility of groups like Death From Above with the light indie-pop stylings of artists like MGMT or Mumford and Sons. This is a well-done, uniquely Canadian take on a popular sound. Check out ‘Don’t Know’ below!
