The Bombay Royale’s “The Island of Dr. Electrico” Out July 8th (via HopeStreet Recordings)+Video
Melbourne-based, world-conquering originators of vintage Bollywood-inspired surf, spy, disco and funk, The Bombay Royale, have unveiled a new single with a bold new video. “Henna Henna” is the first glimpse of their forthcoming album, The Island of Dr Electrico (out July 8 on HopeStreet Recordings via Kudos).
A sweeping, exhilarating romp sung in Bengali with raunchy wild-west flourishes, “Henna Henna” is The Bombay Royale’s first single from their much-anticipated second album. The “high concept” (pun intended) film clip for the track, directed by Kess Broekman-Dattner (The Bamboos / Hermitude/ Clare Bowditch), depicts The Mysterious Lady and her crack team’s efforts to rid the dastardly Skipper of the key to his secret lair and rescue the Tiger, on a private jet somewhere above the Pacific Ocean.
