Royal Oak Drop Hints of Intimate Afterparty with New Single ‘End of the Night’

By Charlie Maybee

Vancouver based indie pop band, Royal Oak, give us something to look forward to with the third single off their upcoming album titled “End of the Night”. Embracing the sexy night life vibes of the big city, this is a song with plenty of swagger.

“You know exactly where I’ll be at the end of the night” asserts lead singer, Myles Philpott, as the chorus ends. Call it a date or a dare, it’s clearly an invitation that infers keeping the good times rolling. “There’s no other way to say it” the band writes, “’End of the Night’ is a sexy song. When a chance encounter with an old friend turns into something more, sparks start to fly”

Built on a solid foundation of club beats and funky bass lines, this song moves and grooves infectiously as it spreads its energy to your shoulders and hips. It’s easy to get lost in dance-trance with a song this smooth and alluring. And beneath it all, as a song written during the pandemic, there is an undoubtable yearning for connection. Pent-up energy abounds as the band wishes for more intimate physical connections

For fans of Chromeo or Cherub, this is a perfect song to add to your next party playlist. It is endlessly danceable and brings out the best of R&B and pop influences into an intoxicating concoction that will have you accepting their vague invitation in no time. You know where they’ll be, and it their confident musical posture seems to imply that they know where we will be as well… *wink*.

“End of the Night” is available on major streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, and YouTube. Find this and more great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.
