about

THE SINGLE
Though the first precise drum beats suggest this could be another Song 2 by Blur, a discordant jangling guitar bites through announcing 80’s New Wave clarity along with articulate vocals uncannily similar to The Cure’s Robert Smith. The tale told by “Ravager” by Them Bloody Royals jumps right into the midst of action, one of escape from attack. With the chorus, this story-song breaks into messy 90’s grunge, its danceable angst defining a new generation that won’t sit still and let the world pass by.

THE BAND
Them Bloody Royals is the reincarnation of the Filipino indie pop/alternative rock outfit The Royal (active from 2011-2018) and is fronted by Sib Sibulo, a former TV Host and MTV Philippines VJ (2007-2010) while the rest of the members hail from different groups such as The Charmes, Plane Divides The Sky, The Out Of Body Special and Boy Elroy. Their music is reminiscent of British bands of the past and the present ranging from jangle-pop to 80’s inspired synth-pop and 90s Britpop.

LYRICS
We’ll never get out alive
Prepare the women and children
There are lifeboats left and right (We’ll never fill them up)
Can you hear the Sirens singing?

Don’t need to start a panic (It’s already too late)
Now don’t forget your coat
Kindly return to your cabins (We have all your names)
The Ravager’s out tonight

You can’t deny it
The signal flares alit
Here comes something so sinister
So vile, it’s divine
So vile, it’s divine

We’ll never get out alive
Even the band’s grief-stricken
And as the darkness comes to life (All manner of vermin scream)
The creatures come to dine

You can’t deny it
The signal flares alit
Here comes something so sinister
So vile, it’s divine
So vile, it’s divine

You can’t deny it
The signal flares alit
Here comes something so sinister
So vile, it’s divine
So vile, it’s divine

You can’t deny it
The signal flares alit
Here comes something so sinister
So vile, it’s divine
So vile, it’s divine, Ugh…
