Lawrence band Pink Royal releases video to ‘I Know You Know’

The Lawrence band Pink Royal has released the video to “I Know You Know,” a song from the “Taps” album, released in April.

The band’s debut video was recorded over two days in October at the Bottleneck and the Jackpot Music Hall in Lawrence.

Pink Royal is a quintet that blends pop, soul and other elements into groovy pop music. The band comprises Josh Dorrell, Nick Carswell, Dylan Guthrie, Steven LaCour and Alex Hartmann.

In November, Hartmann told The Star that Pink Royal’s sound is accessible but not elementary: “There’s lots of math going on. We’re definitely not scared to play around with time signatures or integrated rhythms, which is something most pop bands don’t do all that often.” You can read that story here.

Saturday night, Pink Royal performs at the Riot Room, 4048 Broadway, on a bill with the Noise FM, Yes You Are (see below) and Archie Powell & the Exports. Show time is 8:30 p.m. Admission is $8.
